Donna Hammond District Nursing Sister
Sarah Deacy, Hayley McWalter, Ruth Cook, Kelly Burgess, Mandy Ward
Our District nurses assess, plan and manage the care of sick and disabled housebound patients of all ages in the patient's own home and residential nursing homes. They also provide support for carers.
Individual care is planned, and advice on further help or services is given including health education. Anyone at home can self-refer to this service. They have a close liaison with the Hospital, GPs, the local hospice and other specialised services.
They administer drugs, give injections, dress wounds, take blood samples and give personal care.
The district nurses are in regular contact with the practice and messages may be left on 01562 777269.
