District nurses provide a 24 hour nursing service over 365 days a year providing nursing care and treatments to patients in their own homes to include residential homes.
They provide care to patients who have a short term nursing need, require nursing care following a hospital discharge, have a long term condition or a terminal illness.
District nurses also operate treatment rooms for patients who are able to leave their home and for whom it is clinically appropriate to do so.
District nurses work in partnership with patients, carers, GP’s, Hospitals, Specialist Nurses, Community Matrons, Macmillan Nurses, Social Care Teams and all other Allied Health Professional to help you to live as independently as possible.
