Community Nurses

We have a team of district nurses who work alongside the GP's and surgery staff. They provide skilled nursing care and advice, when requested, to patients, relatives and carers. Unlike the practice nurses their services are focussed on people who are housebound and includes care as diverse as minor dressings to care of the terminally ill at home.

The district nurses also work in co-operation with other health care agencies.

They can be contacted directly on 01323 514879.

Health Visitors

Health Visitors are qualified nurses with special training and experience in child health, health promotion and education. They offer practical support and advice in a host of diverse situations.

Many people think that health visitors only visit new babies and their families at home - this is not the complete picture. Health Visitors aim to promote the health of the whole community.

The Health Visitors can be contacted on 01323 432300.

Your address determines who will be your Health Visitor as they work geographically.  Any family who has a child can access the service.

Health Visitors are subject to a code of professional conduct, which requires them to act in your best interest. Their aim is to help you lead as healthy a life as possible, both physically and mentally.
