More about us

We aim to support patients to gain independence in managing their health needs and will provide teaching and support in various areas, including: injection administration, pressure area care, wound care, catheter and self-help measures.

We work closely with other agencies, such as out-of-hours and social care services.

The nurses are not able to diagnose illness or infections and patients will still need to seek support from their GP if they are unwell.
