Our attached district nursing team provide skilled nursing care to people in their own home in order to assist them to achieve their maximum health potential. If you require nursing treatment, the team will discuss with you a plan of action designed to meet your unique needs.
They will also:
- Get in touch with statutory and voluntary agencies should you require extra help or equipment.
- Liaise with Social Services to develop joint care plans for care in the community.
- Keep you informed of benefits and DWP allowances which you may be entitled to.
To contact the district nurses please phone 0300 300 2012.
Our health visitors are registered nurses with midwifery experience who have had further training in community health, counselling and child development. They aim to promote good health in the community as a whole by working in homes, clinics and in the surgery, as well as performing routine checks.
Your health visitor will assume that all is well unless she hears from you. So if you have any concerns about your child’s development, your own or your family’s health, please contact the health visitors on 9261 2789 from 8.30am to 4.30pm or at the advertised clinics.
Community midwives share the care of pregnant patients with their doctor. They will arrange parentcraft classes and attend new mothers at home in the initial period after they return home.
They can be contacted on 023 9268 0135.
Your doctor can refer you, if necessary, for assessment and initial treatment by our in-house counsellor. Further treatment, if required, can be arranged by referral.
