About our department

We provide nursing care in our local community. We offer a 24 hours a day, 365 days a year service for people either at home or community clinic settings.

The District Nursing Service provides a range of high quality clinical interventions for people in their own homes or community clinic settings. The District Nursing Team works in partnership with specialist nursing teams and advanced practitioners, GPs and multi-agency teams, providing treatments within health centres for patients who can attend clinics. We have an open referral system. We provide packages of care in palliative care/end of life care, wound care, acute care and assessment, ear care, long-term conditions, post-operative care and support, continence care and bowel care.

On referral to the District Nursing Service an initial triage assessment will be carried out by our district nurse central referral team who will arrange a date and venue with you to be seen by a district nurse.
