"District Nurses are Wonderful !"

About: Kirklees PCT / District nursing

(as a relative),

My relative is recovering from major surgery and has needed regular visits from District Nurses based in South Huddersfield to dress wounds. Despite deep snow and difficult driving conditions , they have always attended with a smile and a positive attitude. This has been very much appreciated at this difficult stage of the recovery process.

District Nurses have also initiated and supervised the removal of a catheter, which I believe hospital nursing staff thoughtlessly told the patient would probably be needed for the rest of their life. I think this shows just what can be achieved given a thoughtful caring attitude from NHS Staff.

Our sincere thanks go to all local District Nurses for such a wonderful service.
