The community nursing service (commonly known as District Nurses) provides nursing care to people in their own homes. It is mainly for people who are confined to their home and who are over 18 years of age.
The team provides healthcare that enables individuals to increase and maintain their independence, while remaining at home.
They work closely with social services, GPs, other healthcare professionals and also patients and carers. The service makes sure that patients have the care, help and support they need, while maintaining their comfort and dignity.
