Tried that, wasn't great. It struggles when characters are joined up.

You could try googling a few places which sell fonts. They are called "digital font foundries".

Next you need to select for that style of joined-up writing which looks like handwriting. It's called "Cursive", so use the foundry's Search function to look at their examples.

Get back to us if you are still having difficulties and we will arrange for the nurse to make a home visit.

It's like someone tried to copy Snell by hand. The actual font almost certainly won't have the bar of the r leading into the e like in the example.
