Morale among community nurses is low and many are leaving the service due to stress and an increased workload, a report has claimed.
The report from a Welsh assembly committee said the changing nature of healthcare, in particular the move to provide more help in the home and the ageing population, made the role of community nurses increasingly important. But it said many community nurses feel they do not get the support they need and some see themselves as the “invisible service”.
One of the biggest issues raised by nurses in Wales during a committee inquiry was their inability to access to technology to enable them to do their job effectively.
