Community Team

Health Visitors

Health visitors work within the community to promote good health and prevent ill health. They are able to give advice where specific needs are identified with the individual, family or community. They also provide support at times of physical and/or emotional stress, such as in bereavement.

District Nurses

Our District Nursing Sister, leads a strong team of District Nurses and support staff, providing comprehensive and skilled nursing care to sick and disabled patients in their own homes.

These nurses provide support and advice to their patients, and maintain a close liaison with all medical, social and voluntary agencies concerned with the provision of care to people being treated at home.

Together with the District Nurses, the Doctors provide quality, terminal care to cancer and chronic disease patients in the relative comfort of their home environment.

Where the care provided in home is in respect of the terminally ill, that care is boosted by the close proximity of the St Clare's Hospice, which is a readily available source of help and expertise.

Macmillan Nurses

Macmillan Nurses are specialist nurses who have been trained in the management of pain relief and the provision of emotional support to cancer patients and their families.

Midwives

Midwives provide antenatal and postnatal care. At the birth of the child, they provide for home or hospital delivery, fully considering the patient's choice in this respect. Parentcraft is a key aspect of the midwive's work, where patients are educated in all aspects of pregnancy, childbirth and baby care. The midwives work closely with the GPs in postnatal care via the baby clinics.
