The District Nurse has just been to give some treatment to my wife, and it occurred to me that they are about the one thing that has remained constant in an ever changing health environment.
Always there when needed, always cheerful, always local and operating wherever the patient happens to live.
None of your pristine premises with all the latest gadgets, just good old fashioned, hands on, round the bed, nursing skills, using whatever can be carried upstairs.
She even turned up on foot this time, instead of in a car!
