The let­ter

I have found that the hos­pi­tal, doc­tors, nurses and also the home care doc­tors and nurses to be both friendly and pro­fes­sional.

They have looked af­ter me on a per­sonal level and have shown great em­pa­thy to­wards both my­self and my fam­ily.

With their knowl­edge of the per­sonal prob­lems we are fac­ing have proved holis­tic. I have been at the fore­front of any de­ci­sions with re­gard to my treat­ment; they have acted with great re­spect and sup­port for my­self and that of my fam­ily.

I feel hon­oured that I have had the plea­sure of the ter­mi­nal care in Va­len­cia's health com­mu­nity. Kind re­gards Joan Ed­wards "The English Pa­tient" Dear Mr Davey Our deep­est sym­pa­thy on your loss and grat­i­tude to your­self and Joan for choos­ing to ex­press such kind words of grat­i­tude, de­spite such a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion, through our news­pa­per.
