I thought it was a wonderful thing that I was able to call my community nurse in between appointments when I was having a crisis. I know that there are other services available that you can call if there is a crisis but they are strangers and do not know you in the same way the community nurses do. Having a mobile number for the community nurse was a wonderful thing, I give this service 100/100. It was such a relief for me to be able to call my community nurse, Gerard, when I needed someone to speak to I'd like to see this level of support from all community nurses for all the patients they support. Of course I would not dream of calling at night or at weekends, but it has given me peace of mind knowing he's there if I need him.
