On behalf of my partner (Joan Edwards) who sadly lost her fight for life on Saturday July 21, 2018, I am attaching a letter that she wrote prior to her death that she wanted me to forward to you.
She had enjoyed 18 years living here in Spain and wanted to express her thanks to the medical staff who cared for her.
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.
“The English Patient”
Dear Mr Davey
