"nice having Kirkby nurses come to my home"

About: Mansfield & Ashfield / Community nursing, Ashfield

(as the patient),

I had the district nurses visit after I left hospital. As soon as I was well I was asked to go to the practice nurse. I was ok with this and understood why but it was nice having them come to my home as they were caring.

Many Thanks for your kind comments, oviously the Nurses will always treat peopel at home who are in need; but to be able to treat Patients who require us in the home environment, we do need to look at discharge planning, ensuring the individual's needs are being met.
