A District Nursing Sister is a General nurse with an additional qualification in Health Care in the Community. We have a team of 5 nurses who are based close to the medical centre at the Kingsmead Clinic. They can be contacted on 366717.
The team have a wide range of training and experience in general nursing care of the elderly, palliative care, wound care and infection control. They provide nursing care and support for patients in their own homes thus enabling the patient to remain at home where possible for the duration of their illness. A full holistic assessment of needs is made and referral onto other agencies made where appropriate.
They are available for help and advice on a range of problems such as incontinence, help with disability aids, bathing aids and advice on welfare benefits.
