"District Nurse"

About: NHS West Kent CCG

(as the patient),

I have recently had sex reassignment surgery (I am a transsexual man) and had been catheterised for a week. I am a disabled man who is bed-ridden and has extremely limited mobility. I had many, many problems with the catheter, and both the district nursing team and the rapid response team were beyond amazing. They were all incredibly kind, open-minded, gentle and patient. I'd particularly like to mention Faye O'Neill, the District Nurse (not certain of the spelling of her name), who went above and beyond in her kindness dealing with the fact that I have PTSD. An incredible team.
