Grate­ful pa­tient

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS -

Re­cently, I had the mis­for­tune to get a bit close to the Heav­enly door, but was lucky to in­stead ar­rive at the doors of Dun­stan Hos­pi­tal.

From the moment the St John am­bu­lance ar­rived at my home, the team of pro­fes­sion­als each took their place in help­ing me with my road to re­cov­ery.

That lovely new build­ing on the side of the road that we take for granted is not to be taken lightly.

It hides so much tal­ent – from ded­i­cated ra­di­ol­o­gists, doc­tors, phys­io­ther­a­pists, nurses, of­fice staff, cooks, kitchen staff and so many oth­ers. Each one plays such a huge part in the end re­sult of heal­ing the pa­tients and mak­ing sure they have the ut­most com­fort.

I would like to thank each staff mem­ber who helped me dur­ing my stay and wish you all well in your ca­reers.

The staff are rais­ing funds at present for ‘‘Free to Air’’ for the pa­tients’ com­fort, in the form of a Christ­mas ham­per, so please sup­port these great peo­ple and the ‘‘Friends of Dun­stan’’. This jewel of a hos­pi­tal must be pre­served.

For­ever grate­ful
