The District Nursing Team carry out a wide variety of duties such as:
- Drug Administration

District nurses run clinics in the surgery but also visit patients who are housebound and unable to get out.
When carrying out house calls they are unable to specify exact dates and times that they will be calling as they expect you to be home, however, they do recognise that some housebound patients do have to visit hospitals and day centres at times; If this is the case, when organising your home visit with the nurse, please let them know any relevant information with regards to this.
