"Nurse is always pleasant and very kind"

About: Adult community services / Lymphoedema Service

(as the patient),

Mrs Shaw came to my home to check my legs and measure for new stockings.

She listened to what I had to say and made suggestions to help me. She is always pleasant and very kind.

I have varicose eczema and a leg ulcer. The district nurses were wonderful especially Mrs Elaine Wassell.

I was then referred to Donna Shaw and she checks me regularly.
