"My community nurse is a waste of space!"

I live in Preston and I have found the community matron service useless. I feel let down by them. The matron is supposed to keep an eye on me, but I ask her to check on things and she doesn't follow them up. I asked her to looking into getting me a diabetic nurse, and to check on an appointment which I had been waiting weeks for but she didn't follow it up at all. As far as I'm concerned she's a waste of space! She even makes appointments with me and then doesn't turn up! Next time I see her, I'll tell her to leave it and not bother coming again. I've managed so far, even though I'm elderly and frail, so I guess i'll continue continue to manage alone.
