I have been lucky to have a wonderful Macmillan nurse visit me for the past 4 years since I was diagnosed with womb cancer back in Dec 2009. She has been a wonderful help and support, not only to me but also my husband. I have long term side effects of my cancer treatment and she has always been there to help me.
On her last visit a couple of weeks ago, she told me that she is leaving her post and moving elsewhere which means that I no longer have a Macmillan nurse and it would appear that the post is unlikely to be filled in the near future.
I live on an island off the west coast of Scotland and she covered the island as well as some of the mainland as part of her workload.
Myself and I imagine many of her other patients feel very let down that we may not be getting a replacement anytime soon.
