Community Nursing

Community Nursing Services are made up of many different types of service.

The services work with patients in their own homes, in GP surgeries or in other locations in their local community.

Some services work particularly with families and young children; some work with people across all age groups; some work with people with specific health problems; and others work with patients who need palliative care.

Our District Nursing services

District NurseThe District Nursing Service is for patients considered to be housebound and who find it difficult to get to local clinics or GP surgeries for their care.

The service is provided on a 24 hours a day, seven days a week basis. Our main aim is to help people remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Some people with several health problems might also have a community matron.
