District Nursing Sister
Patients who are confined to their home and need nursing assistance may arrange with their Doctor for a Community Nursing Sister to call.
The district nurses also run leg ulcer clinics. This is strictly by appointment and patients should call 01253 951418. This is an answerphone service and messages are collected regularly by the District Nursing team.
Dressing clinics are now provided by the Wound Care service, again strictly by appointment and the telephone number is 0300 123 1144.
The Health Visitor is a qualified nurse who has special training to offer advice and health education, particularly in the home.
