Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
The Care Co-ordination Centre will be the single point of access for the District Nurse and Community Matron Service. This service means that you will contact the Care Co-ordination Centre instead of contacting your District Nurse or Community Matron directly.
If you require a visit from the District Nurse or Community Matron, or have any immediate concerns, please contact us on 01709 426600. This is a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week service.
By contacting the centre you will be able to speak to a member of the team who will listen to your concerns, take your details and where necessary refer you to a qualified NHS nurse who can offer you any advice and support where necessary.
