District Nurses are available to deliver nursing care at home to housebound patients. Individual care is planned and advice on further help or services is given including health education. District Nurses may administer drugs, give injections, dress wounds, take blood samples, give personal care as well as provide support for carers. They are also able to undertake assessment visits that may lead to referral to other services for assistance or technical aids.
To contact the District nursing team please call 0300 323 0930
