Posted by No complaints but more time for staff (as ),
I just wanted to acknowledge how hard the district nursing team work to heal my leg ulcer. I know how busy they are I and sometimes feel that, while they try not to show they are rushed and short staffed. I would like to be able to do more such as order my own dressings but the GP's don't allow it. this is a great shame as I like to be independent and is such a waste for the nursing staff to have to do this for every patient. The nurses are caring and understand my problems but when agency staff are used a lot (which I assume is because of staff shortages) things don't get done and this causes delays.
