Academic Journal
The article profiles Sue Burton, a Community Matron in Basildon Primary Care Trust. She started her district nurse training in 2003. While training, she noticed that many of her nursing home clients were not being assessed, because they had no obvious nursing need. Her subsequent career path has grown out of this observation. Sue is a great believer in the community matron being an extension of district nursing.
