Thanks for the great care

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

What a great help­ful com­mu­nity Mata­mata has.

Af­ter a bike ac­ci­dent on Fe­bru­ary 10 and while phon­ing for an am­bu­lance from the side of the road, a neigh­bour op­po­site where I was ly­ing on the ground came run­ning over to see if he could help me.

We waited for the am­bu­lance, it was tied up on an­other emer­gency so he got me into the back of his car and drove me to Pohlen Hos­pi­tal.

I was seen by Ronda, who took con­trol and af­ter be­ing sta­bilised, rang for the am­bu­lance to trans­port me with so much care by Joanne and her St John as­sis­tant to Waikato Hos­pi­tal and wait for an op­er­a­tion to in­sert a plate into my frac­tured leg.

Af­ter a 10- day stay in Waikato Hos­pi­tal, I was picked up by the two won­der­ful ladies on last Thurs­day af­ter­noon’s Mata­mata Health Shut­tle.

They held up the shut­tle for an ex­tra hour un­til I was dis­charged to make sure I was on my way home that af­ter­noon.

To you the driver and her as­sis­tant who went be­yond the call of duty, thank you!

What a won­der­ful ser­vice you pro­vide to a won­der­ful car­ing Mata­mata com­mu­nity.
