I would like to make a contradiction to the article in the newspaper about NHS carers in our area (“Home care scandal will put lives at risk”, February 25, ).
I have been in Lincoln Hospital for the last six weeks suffering with a fractured skull, and the care has been amazing. I went into four different wards and the carers in each one were wonderful.
I then went into two different nursing homes - Cheyne House in Lincoln for 11 days, and Fir Close Care Home in Louth for two days - and I can’t fault them.
They are amazing, wonderful people who devote their time and I was treated almost like a private patient.
Councillor Mair said in the article that carers were moving ‘straight from the dole queue’ and didn’t have qualifications. But you don’t need qualifications, you just need to care!
From the head surgeon to the cleaning staff, they were all brilliant. These amazing people do not get recognised, and we should really think about how lucky we are.
