Chris O’Brien Lifehouse Board Director Gail O’Brien has joined the hospital staff as Patient Advocate. Her own experiences through the illness of her late husband Chris O’Brien’s illness over a period of two-and-a-half years taught her much from the perspective of the patient and carer. The subsequent serious illnesses of two of her children also left lasting impressions that she carries into this role. “I am hopeful that by visiting patients with a “listening heart”, they will find it valuable and beneficial.”
Channel 9 News interviews Gail about the new role.
