The Repatriation General Hospital Daw Park Adelaide, is an older style hospital with buildings added on, remodelled over the years. Which makes the place a little difficult to find your way around. I have had to attend their Out Patient Department over the past two years and have found the staff most helpful, attentive, and very professional. The Medical staff are highly specialised, giving me great confidence in the treatment I have received. Over the past few years, you read in the local paper "this hospital to be closed down". When you look at the ageing statistics of our population, the number of people on huge long term waiting lists, it would seem common sense not to close this hospital down. I spoke to a number of patients today, and they all expressed my sentiments. Why close a very well used popular functioning hospital down? Unfortunately Common Sense has passed away.
