Great care from the home care nurses who came to see me.  Very kind and understanding.

Placement in Community Nursing was an eye opener on what services we offer to people and being able to learn from other nurses was an enjoyable experience.

I would like to congratulate EGHS. I think we are so lucky to have the service you provide. I have used them a few times and the staff are so pleasant. Thanks.

The personal care I received from staff was faultless. They were always polite. They were always on time. They were respectful of my wishes. They carried out their work diligently and quietly. They had all the equipment they required. I was not made to feel useless because of my injury. They did not rush me, even though they had many more jobs to do. Their advice was valuable.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the wonderful community nurses who look after me. Their care and kindness is the best and never too busy to talk to me.

I was visited at home for treatment following surgery and at all times I found the Community Nursing staff very helpful, friendly and professional and I would sincerely like to thank them.
