The team consists of a sister, staff nurses and health care assistants. They offer a high quality professional and confidential home nursing service to housebound patients who are sick, frail or elderly and to the terminally ill. Community nurses may also visit patients who have been discharged from hospital if the hospital advises this is necessary. They give help and advice to patients and carers through periods of illness on how to obtain assistance from other agencies e.g. Social Services and organisations offering support in the home.
