We are a team of community nurses who provide urgent nursing care to housebound adults in their own homes, between the hours of 6pm to 8am, 7 days a week. Our service is for patients registered with a West Sussex GP. Urgent Nursing Care is considered to be any nursing intervention that cannot wait until the next day or, will avoid hospital admission, e.g blocked catheters & catheter problems, end of life care, pain relief, wound care as a result of a fall or leaking wounds, injections and diabetic care to name a few.
We have a 2 hour response time and all calls will be prioritised by the senior nurse in charge on receipt of the referral. Following any intervention by the Overnight Team you will be referred on to the appropriate service. We cannot accept any long term care needs.
If you think your problem is an emergency please dial 999.
