What we do

The District Nursing Team provides complex clinical care to patients living in their own homes.  Working together the aim is to work with patients to empower them to self manage long term conditions and prevent avoidable hospital admission.  The teams support patients and their families who are in the palliative phase of their illness and provide end of life care.
