Heart­felt thanks for all the car­ing peo­ple of WA

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph Opinion - Jayne Barthorpe, c/o R. and V. Lever, Waikiki

As a vis­i­tor from Canada to this lovely coun­try and beau­ti­ful State I feel it nec­es­sary to record my sin­cere and heart­felt thanks to the staff of Rock­ing­ham Hospi­tal, the peo­ple of WA, and in­deed, to ev­ery­one in this coun­try, filled I be­lieve with peo­ple of true com­pas­sion.

I came here dur­ing Fe­bru­ary, prin­ci­pally to care for my par­ents, both in their 90s, and with my mother suf­fer­ing a de­bil­i­tat­ing ill­ness. How­ever, dur­ing the week­end of March 31 I de­vel­oped se­vere stom­ach pains and went to the emer­gency sec­tion of the lo­cal hospi­tal, where I was im­me­di­ately treated with lov­ing care and at­ten­tion.

My prob­lems were di­ag­nosed and I was treated to the very best of pro­fes­sional at­ten­tion by doc­tors, nurses, and all other staff. I was dis­charged on Thurs­day, and plan to re­turn home to Canada later this month.

My last­ing mem­o­ries of this episode of my life, and I am 69 years old, will be of the won­der­ful health ser­vice avail­able to Aus­tralians and vis­i­tors, and my very best wishes are of­fered to all.
