I have lived in Cotgrave for 30 years and have had to use the services of the District Nurse after I suffered an infection in my leg, for which I was hospitalised. When I returned home, it was their dedication and support that helped me back to health.
I also had experience of the District Nurse Service concerning my Mum. She became ill at home in Skegness and was taken to Lincolnshire hospital. Mum was in hospital for many weeks and lost so much weight and her leg ulcers which she'd had for over 4 years were no better. So I decided to bring Mum home to Cotgrave into Eton Park care home where I could keep a close eye on her.
The district nurses attended mum's ulcerated legs and within 8 weeks her ulcers had healed really well. It was great to see as it had been a few years since I had seen her without bandages on both legs.
These nurses worked wonders with Mum, I had not seen her so well for a while. Unfortunately Mum contracted shingles followed by pneumonia and died in hospital.
I would like to say a huge thank you to all they did for Mum and for giving the family a chance to see her so well, which is how we now remember her.
