We have all experienced the healthcare systems in our respective towns and cities. Many of us wish for better for the next generation. I have personally seen just how poorly patients can be treated in the healthcare system, truly the pits of the healthcare system both here in Australia and in third world countries. I have also seen another side to the healthcare system; the hope that surfaces when skill is coupled with support, whereby simple acts of kindness or knowledge sharing of a healthcare provider with their patient uplifts and changes a life. We must continue to aspire for a stronger healthcare system.
