Anna from Christchurch

Last week I was transferred from Bealey 24 hour surgery to Christchurch Public Hospital with Acute Abdominal Pain. As a nurse, and previous employee of St John, I was aware of the process however had never before been a patient. I was treated with dignity, kindness and generally felt reassured by the ambulance officers at what was an anxious time. On arrival at the ED, seeing the friendly faces of familial operations staff was comforting and their appropriate humour appreciated! Thank you Juliet, David and Chris for offering a professional and empathetic service.
