Dear Sir,

Further to the article in the Oxford Mail on January 16, I am the 'elderly woman' who was knocked down at Botley shops.

I am writing to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for all the assistance that was given to me on that unfortunate day.

First of all the Oxford Aunts (carers), Sarah and her friend, who looked after me while awaiting the ambulance that turned up within five minutes!

Then from the JR, the paramedics, A&E, Neuro Ward, X-Ray, Anaesthetics, Theatre, Porters, Plastic Surgeons, Trauma, SSIP, Gyno Ward, catering and cleaners.

I am now home after nine days in the JR with ongoing treatment, but I must congratulate the staff on their dedication and professionalism.

A very big thank you to you all - well done!

Yours faithfully

Lin Parsons
