Overview

The District Nursing service provides nursing care and phlebotomy services to patients who are permanently housebound or patients who may be temporarily housebound. We accept referrals from GPs, hospitals, other health professionals and organisations such as St Christophers. We also accept some self-referrals for patients already known to the District Nursing service.

We provide interventions such as:

  • Long term conditions management (eg: diabetes/insulin)
  • Identify and support those who have exacerbations of serious illnesses
  • Wound management and leg ulcer care
  • Nursing care at end of life
  • Pain management and intravenous medication
  • Catheter care
  • Blood pressure checks

 

The District Nursing service comprises of District Nurses, Community Staff Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Phlebotomists. They work closely with other health professionals to ensure that the care provided is tailored to your individual needs.

On our first visit we will assess your needs and talk to you about options available to you. We will then write a plan of care and support you by making referrals (where appropriate) to other specialist services such as bladder and bowel helping you to manage your own health so that you remain well for longer.

The team will work with you, your family and carers to recognise changes to your condition that could lead to a deterioration in your health, and ensure you know how to get appropriate help.
