District nursing

District nursing work is preventive and supportive. It can also be highly technical, intensive and practical. The nature of the work is unpredictable and changeable; this requires the District Nurse to be responsive, flexible and adaptable. We work in teams and each team works closely with you and your general practitioner, as well as other people involved in your care.

District Nurses are the face of the NHS for many patients outside of hospital. We can be a key professional in providing practical support and a key confidante for both you and your carer.  One in four people over the age of 75, and one in two of those aged over 85, will receive care from a District Nurse. We will see you in your own home. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We provide advice, holistic assessment, signposting and a comprehensive range of nursing treatments that enable you to avoid unnecessary admission to hospital, or where hospitalisation is necessary, to facilitate early discharge. The purpose of the service is to ensure that housebound residents within Herefordshire are able to access highly skilled nursing care when they are unable to do so elsewhere.
