Our community nurses play a crucial role in caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities: housebound patients who have a long-term health condition and/or are frail elderly who are registered with a local GP.
As well as providing direct patient care, community nurses also work with patients to enable them to care for themselves or with family members teaching them how to give care to their relatives.
Community nurses play a vital role in keeping hospital admissions and readmissions to a minimum and ensuring that patients can return to their own homes as soon as possible.
