In an emergency, What's in a name
As perceptive as usual, our readership have identified a possible problem that could affect residents if they are in an emergency situation with a health issue.
Our readers have advised us that if you find yourself in an emergency situation the only place you will find the Mossman Hospital telephone number is on the tourismportdouglas.com.au/Newsport directory. How so, I hear you ask, that it is not in any other local directories ? The answer is simple....it is ! However, although we, as locals, still call it Mossman Hospital and it's even in Hospital Street, the official name of Mossman Hospital is now Mossman Multi-Purpose Health Service.
It's not a very catchy name is it but that's what you'll have to reference to find the number elsewhere ? So, if you find yourself in an emergency and you can't remember the long version, just go to tourismportdouglas.com.au or thenewsport.com.au and enter Mossman Hospital in the search bar and you'll get the number immediately.
