My MIL has had several episodes where she needed regular dressings. Now she needs regular injections. The practice has told me they cannot arrange District Nurses as MIL is physically able to get to the surgery and besides it is “only 5 minutes “. I am incensed. I cannot always take her to appointments as my parents 84 and 87 with dementia and other health problems take up a lot of time as well. They seem to have no comprehension that to get her ready, out and back home is a lengthy process which will take up most of a morning or afternoon, especially when the practice nurse is running at least 30 minutes late. I stressed that although physically capable she is cognitively totally incompetent and this should mean she qualifies for home visits. Does anyone else have similar experiences and if so how did they get around it? is it the same in all of the uk?
