IN August I broke my hip in a nasty fall. As I was screaming in pain, the ambulance personnel called paramedics to give me morphine. They were wonderful.

Staff on the orthopaedics ward at Fairfield were also very good to me. The surgeon and anaesthetist were kind and gave me confidence. I was transferred to Ward 29 for rehabilitation. Staff there were also wonderful. After a few days I was allowed home and the rehabilitation team visited twice a day for six weeks. I had a wonderful 10 days despite the horrific pain. I came home with good memories of very kind people.
