Adult District Nursing

Community nursing provides invaluable care to people in their own homes, care homes or close to where they live in clinics and GP practices.  

About our service

The service provides individual, personalised care to the people, involving their family, carers and referring to other healthcare teams if necessary.

The Community Nursing team also works with other health and social care staff to:

  • Provide safe and effective care using a multi professional approach
  • Reduce unnecessary hospital admissions, support discharge from hospital and keep people in their own homes as long as possible
  • Work with other professionals, patients and their carers to provide consistent care
  • Work with patients to be as independent as possible and help them manage their own care
  • Provide advice and recommend additional healthcare services to patients, family and carers.
