District Nurses (Nursing Care at Home)

District nurses or community nurses work together in Inter Disciplinary Teams with occupational therapists, physiotherapists and other workers to deliver community health services to patients in their own homes.

They provide services for housebound patients.

There is an open referral process, this means that patients that need nursing care at home can be referred into the service by a GP or other relevant health care professional.

If you think you need nursing care at home you can call them directly on 01588 676323

The teams deliver urgent and planned care to patients helping to prevent avoidable admissions to a main hospital and to promote a healthy lifestyle as well as to maximise independence at home.

Teams also work closely with partner agencies to deliver end of life (palliative) care to patients and their families, supporting people to die at home if this is their preferred choice.

They also work with other services in the community.

Nurses or therapists that you may see may also refer you to other members of the multidisciplinary team if you need more specialist advice and support.
