Clinics and Services

District Nurses

There is a district nurse team allocated to the practice. They provide nursing care for those patients of all age groups in their own home, to those patients who are housebound and need long term care, wound/ulcer dressing, insulin injections and care of patients who may be terminally ill.

The district nurses liaise with your doctor, other members of the healthcare team and social services to ensure the best possible care is provided.
