Our Community service has a range of healthcare specialists including district nurses, health visitors, community matrons and community dentists.

As well as providing direct care, our district nurses also have a teaching role. They work closely with patients so they can better care for themselves.  They also work with their families so they can better care for their loved ones.

Our District Nursing service often provides a co-ordination role with a variety of different agencies and professional groups.

Sue Pritchard has been a qualified nurse for 16 years. She ‘loves district nursing because it’s an autonomous role’, with support from her team and the District Nurse. Hear more about Sue’s role and the opportunities she’s had to develop her nursing skills in areas like palliative care and complex wound care below.
