District Nurse Team
The District Nursing Team continues to provide high quality research-based care for patients who are house bound and are unable to access surgery facilities. We are integral part of the wider healthcare team, social services and other agencies. We support complex packages promoting early discharge from hospital and preventing hospital admissions.
