Community Nursing Service

 

You don’t need to be in hospital to receive nursing care.

 

Every month our Community Nurses carry out more than 30,000 visits to people who need nursing support.

 

Our fully integrated Community Nursing Service provides healthcare to patients in their own homes and in leg ulcer clinics.  We help people to remain as independent as possible, maintaining comfort and dignity. We have more than 380 staff, including registered and non-registered nurses, and some with advanced practice (i.e. Community Matrons).

 

We care for patients with a wide range of health problems, from wound care and acute illnesses to those with complex or long term health problems, including end-of-life care. We also provide short-term intensive care to try and help patients avoid going to hospital where appropriate.

We work closely with GPs, social services, other health professionals, the voluntary sector, patients and carers. By working together we can make sure patients have all the care, help and support they need.

 

 

What to expect

 

Our nursing staff will:

 

  • assess what your health needs are and agree your plan of care with you. They may refer to social services if required
  • offer advice, information and support to help you understand your condition, and how to manage it
  • provide information and support for carers (including family members)
  • care for patients with illnesses that can’t be cured (eg end of life care)
  • manage long-term conditions in order to reduce avoidable hospital admissions

 

Access

 

 

We have an open referral system for anyone over the age of 18. This means that as long as you are over 18, you can refer yourself, or be referred by anyone else that thinks you may require our care and support.

 

Opening times:


The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

 

GPs can refer using the referral form
