"community nurses a joke"

About: Clacton Hospital

have been in hospital for eight months and i have an open wound that has to be changed every two days, the nurses came for a couple of weeks then just stopped coming, 10 days later we arranged to attend clacton hospital twice a week making sure we would get seen but after a few visits we attended an appointment but no one was there they had gone home early. the time before this apt a swab was taken but no result was available as they had used the wrong swab. what is this place and where did they get the so called nurses from totally disgusting, luckily my hubby can do the dressings.
