About: Helston Community Hospital

Mum seen out and about so no longer fits district nurses criteria. She needs inr blood test done weekly and fragmin injections when required. She has 2 cancers and terminaly ill no imune system and incontinant.But aparantly dont fit the criteria. So everyone they visit is bedbound?

As part of her having a positive outlook to the rest of her life whats left

I take her out to the beach. Requested by her consultant for positive outlook and ill continue to do so until she dies. No reason for no visit from district nurses
