Community Nursing

What we do  

The Community Nursing Service provides:

  • Co-ordinated care provision and case management for patients with long term conditions
  • Planned programmes of nursing intervention and supportive care
  • Referral and liaison with other agencies to promote maximum independence
  • Advice and information on a range of health issues.

The service provides nursing care predominantly in patients own homes.  Nurses will visit non housebound patients whose nursing needs indicate it is more appropriate for them to be seen in their own homes.

Some care considered to require the specialist skills of the District Nursing Service such as wound care, are delivered in clinic settings as close to the patients home as possible.
