West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has received correspondence from numerous District Nurses concerned over their future.
The correspondence claims the number of district Nurses in England has fallen from 7,700 in 2010 to only 4,400 today and the funding for District nursing training courses is under threat.
MP Rosie has raised these concerns with the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock and with local NHS leaders.
However, none of the District Nurses included their contact details leaving Rosie with no way of responding to their concerns!
West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“I was inundated with letters from District Nurses were clear and understandable concerns about the future of their service despite their importance to the NHS and their role in ensuring patients can be discharged.
“Unfortunately, none of the letters signed and sent to me include any correspondence details so I am unable to confirm to them the actions I have taken on the back of their communication!
“I have raised the concerns with the Health Secretary and with local NHS leaders and will gladly share my progress on these matters with the District Nurses, but would like to let them know to contact me or my office on email@example.com or 01695 570094.
“Perhaps someone from The Queen’s Nursing Initiative could inform their West Lancashire supporters that I would be pleased to meet with the District Nurses to discuss their concerns.”
