The district nursing team provides skilled nursing care and support to people at home and in other community settings. The team works with GPs, community and adult care services, private care agencies and many other health care professionals to enable housebound people achieve maximum independence.
Once your health is improved or you are no longer housebound, you will be asked to make an appointment with one of the practice nurses if you need to continue nursing treatments. For those patients who are seriously ill and choose to remain at home, the service also offers end of life care.
The district nurse service is available from Monday to Friday, 08:30-16:30. District nurses can be contacted on 03004 218 782.
If you should require a district nurse urgently outside surgery hours, please telephone 03004 4210 555.
