Community Nurses

The district nursing team provides a comprehensive assessment and an agreed plan of care.

Care of terminally ill patients and their families is also carried out by the district nurse team. Patients are referred to the district nurses by either the hospital or their doctor. The district nurses may be contacted on 398013

Mental Health Team

The team consists of a number of mental health professionals, each with different skills. Who you see will depend on the problem you have. The team works closely with the doctors, and has links with hospital based services. The team provides a specialist and confidential service that covers the vast range of problems that can affect a person’s mental health. Access to the team is usually by referral from the doctor.
