The value of specialist nurses
Jim singles out the nursing care he’s received as one of his biggest positives. “My nurses have always been extremely high quality – professional and compassionate,” he says. “They have a genuine interest in my wellbeing.
“I’ve always had a specialist nurse that goes between myself and my consultant. That’s a wonderful thing. I can ring her any time, and she can pass information on.
“It’s absolutely perfect; the communication is great. I can contact Sciensus any time I need them. There’s always somebody on the other end of the phone.”
He adds: “This service makes a big difference to my life. It means I’ve got the strength and the energy to cope with treatment without going through the stress of travelling and waiting in hospital.”
