The Community Nurse team is run by Tina Douglas, they are attached to the Practice. They provide nursing care to patients in their homes.
Most of the Community Nurses’ work takes place in people’s home during periods of short and long-term illness. They will visit you (and your family if appropriate) to discuss and plan the care you need. They work closely with your GP and other local specialist nurses, e.g: Macmillan nurses; therapists; podiatrists; Social Services – e.g support workers and voluntary services – who may contribute to your care.
The nurses can obtain specialised equipment, including continence products, to help with daily living. They also undertake health home screening and health promotion to help you stay healthy with guidance on weight, smoking, alcohol and all aspects of keeping healthy throughout life.
