The health centre provides 24hour care for up to eight patients staffed by one nurse during the day and one at night. They also need to be able to travel out to the villages to do clinics and there are many sick and frail patients who need to be seen in their homes. Our seniors are living longer so are frailer and need more care.
We have four nurses at present but have no funding for the fourth after Christmas. It costs approximately £135 per month to employ a full time nurse.
Please will you help us keep all our nurses working.
