My first term as an intern in FSH ED couldn’t have been better. Such an amazing team and supportive environment - thanks to everyone that made these first steps such a memorable experience!
— Al, Intern
Big thanks to all the staff at Fremantle hospital for making it such a pleasant and supportive place to work. It’s a genuine pleasure to work with all of you!
Big shout out to the Orthopaedics Reg Zach Sinagra. May be the most compassionate doctor I’ve ever met and he’s doing ortho!
We had a misfortunate homeless patient in ED he saw. Took 30 seconds to decide ideal management, then spent 40 minutes working to sort out the patients social situation to ensure they received adequate follow up! Magnificent example to all doctors, and a good man.
Shout out to both Bec Loo (Dec/Jan) and Sara Pearson (April) for covering for me whilst I had LSL. Both have done an awesome job! Thank you!
— Steph, Allied Health
Thanks to Joseph Kelly for making everyday at work as fun as a day at the park.
Thank you to the Paediatric registrars for all of your great teaching! Best term so far of RMO!
Thanks to the plastics registrars for putting up with my referrals and always offering great advice!
Big thanks to Clare who’s been keeping the Psych team afloat with me and a Reg down with the flu!
Also in general, she’s extremely competent, efficient, pleasant and and an all-round a great person to work with :)
Thanks to the AMU registrars for being such a supportive bunch, and making the busy rotation more bearable!

Thank you for always having a lovely smile Mayoora!
To all the staff on W42 Fremantle Mental health.
I would like to acknowledge all the staff on W42 who have been amazing in positively engaging and embracing the changes we had to make to the ward just before the long Easter break to accommodate a different cohort of patients they would normally take. We found ourselves as a service having to make a extraordinary decision to accept patients from the SMHS area on to the ward that would normally be placed in a different setting within Mental health.
The team as usual approached this issue with the calmness and enthusiasm that you always feel when you enter the ward. The team who had never been in this situation before accepted the challenge confidently and adapted to situations as it arose with solutions that always had the patients safety, wellbeing and recovery at heart.
I can not emphasis enough what a remarkable team you are and great to work with.
— Jane, Nursing Co-ordinator
Shout out to Jane Porter HOD Dietetics for going above and beyond and being such a fearless leader. She cares for all her team and gives them every opportunity to grow and supports them to be better clinicians.
— Libby, Allied Health
Dr Rebecca Pittroff in ED - so approachable and kind, makes every shift a fun experience and alleviates a lot of anxiety, especially for a junior new to ED :)

Thanks to Kausalya for checking in on me when I was massively under the pump in ED. I was having a crazy day and the pressure to get patients out of ED was huge. Just knowing that someone else knew what was going on and cared immediately lifted my spirits.

To Dr James Hickey,
You took the time to walk your patient out of the department. Taking the initative to do this and the other little extra things you do are what make you a great Dr. You have great communication skills and always ensure that the area leads are kept UTD with what is happening for your patients. You are an example of wholesome, well rounded care. Thank you.

To all the FSH ED staff. In an unpredictable and pressured environment, I would like to say thanks to everyone from Clerks, Cleaners and Porters to Med Students, RMO’s, Reg’s, Consultants, Allied Health and ALL Nursing staff for making every day I come to work enjoyable. Smiling, being friendly, helping out with jobs that aren’t necessarily yours, coffee runs, welfare checks, support and encouragement for each other as we role progress. Together we all work well as a team and we get the job done. There are quiet a few hard working people who don’t go unnoticed. Keep the communication open and the can-do attitudes and don’t forget no matter the role we all have an important part of how the department flows. Thanks for making the last few years the favourite ones of my working life.
