Letter of reference:

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter, written on the 13th of June 2007, serves to confirm that Justin Mac Donald is currently employed at Netcare 911 Pinetown Base Kwa Zulu Natal. He is a senior crewmember on an intermediate life support vehicle.He is hard working, diligent and is reliable.

There were many occasions where he was requested, without obligation, to change shifts or work night shifts instead of dayshifts or the same visa versa, which he did so willingly and without hesitation. He is responsible for ensuring that all Afid David’s received from the South African Police services are completed by the relevant parties and sent back. He undertook this task diligently and proved reliable.

Justin sick leave record is impeccable; he always comes to work early in order to take over his vehicle so he could be available for calls shortly before his shift starts. Justin has been a productive asset to the Pinetown operation because he has a business focus, which has contributed to the financial success of our business.

Justin is a person of integrity and has a high moral value system. He has always been a worthy ambassador for the company and always casts the company in a positive light because of his empathy and excellent bedside manners toward our clients and patients.

Justin is a highly competent clinician and has had many years experience in the prehospital emergency field. He keeps calm and focused when dealing with emergencies especially when people around him are distressed or panicking.

I would not hesitate to employ Justin.
