Here’s the real story that is behind the Inside Story

By Riverine Herald

ECHUCA’S police and hospital services are uniting once again to see a better outcome for our community.

In addition to featuring nail-biting firsthand accounts of some of Victoria’s most notable crimes, next week’s Blue Ribbon Foundation Inside Story event will raise money for a new simulator to help train both medical and nursing staff at Echuca Regional Health.

‘‘This will help keep staff up to date with current guidelines and allow them to practice real-life scenarios,’’ ERH emergency unit manager Craig Frew said.

‘‘Blue Ribbon does an amazing job supporting the hospital and keeping our equipment up to date, which ultimately helps the community.’’

ERH associate nurse unit manager and Echuca Blue Ribbon committee member Nat Retallick said a healthy relationship between the local hospital and police services was vital.

‘‘We’re both working in emergency services, so it’s crucial for us to work together and support each other,’’ she said. ‘‘Because if we do, this means patients have a better outcome.’’

The second Inside Story this year, Wednesday’s popular event will feature an account from Narelle Fraser, who was a member of Victoria Police for 27 years working across the Rape and Homicide Squads and Missing Persons Unit.

She will walk audiences through the chilling case of the Mornington Monster.

Inside Story will be held at Moama Bowling Club on Wednesday, October 17 at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

While tickets are sold out for the event, you can call 5485 5087 to go on a waiting list.

Tickets cost $45 per person (including a two course meal).
