Our district nurses are part of the Primary health Care Team. They are highly qualified nurses who have undergone further extensive training to enable them to specialise in providing high quality care to patients in the Community. Home visits are made at the discretion of the District Nurse and are usually only made to patients who are unable to get out of the house, or have been assessed by the District Nurse as having a physical and/or medical problem which prevents them from attending the surgery.
They assess the needs of patient in the home environment. They implement a high standard of nursing care according to identified needs and refer to other specialist nurse and agencies as appropriate. Out of hours (18:30 – 08:00 hours and weekends) please contact South East Health Ltd 03000 242424.
