SIR - Following a total hip replacement my GP put me in touch with the Intermediate Care Team to help me recover in my own home.

I really did not expect much, given the state of many other services provided by the local district and county authorities. How very wrong I was! I live alone and without the wonderful support of the district nurses and their team, I certainly could not have managed on my own.

Their efficiency, reliability and above all, cheerfulness, have helped me make a speedy recovery. Age Concern has also been a great help. I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation to all concerned and highlight the work of these dedicated individuals.
