Tributes: –

David Allen – Hospital Chaplain & Hospital Executive alongside Randa –

‘’For me the standout memory of Randa is that way her deep faith in Jesus directed everything she did – her professional work as a nurse and as a leader in the hospital and in her relationships with staff. A lovely example of a Godly life worked out in very practical ways for the blessing of others -’’ – David and Helen Allen.

‘‘Randa was a great support to me, when I became DNS in 1987, I employed her as my deputy. It was a great decision. We have been friends forever’

I have known her since the 1980’s. She was an unbelievable colleague, and we developed a friendship that has lasted until the present time.

Randa’s professionalism was matched by her caring attitude to patients and colleagues and underpinned by her strong Christian faith.

Randa is such a special person…………..

Her kindness know no limits and she wants the best for everyone, she certainly always wanted the best for the hospital.

Perseverance is another attribute.

My wish for Randa’s future is that she will take her time to enjoy her retirement and continue to be a blessing to her family and friends.’’ –  Sheila Drummond
