Our Staff

Community Nurses

District nursing sisters are qualified to degree level and provide a service to housebound patients. The district nurse is supported by a team of fully qualified nurses. The team provides professional support and advice in a variety of areas such as terminal care, wound care, incontinence assessments and some post-operative discharge follow-ups. Each patient is assessed individually and care planned accordingly, in discussion with the patient. Referral on to other agencies may be appropriate in some cases.
