District nurses are one of the many different types of nurses who manage care within the community, rather than in a hospital.

They also visit patients in their homes and provide the necessary advice and care.

They play a crucial role in ensuring that patients get the necessary treatment at home thereby keeping hospital admissions and readmissions to a minimum.

The management care they provide include wound care, continence care, catheter care and palliative care amongst others.

The health visitors provide a service revolving around the needs of children and parents from soon after birth.

They can be seen by referral from a doctor or nurse or seen at a drop in service on Thursday afternoons.

Health visitors work with parents who have new babies, offering support and informed advice from the ante-natal period until the child starts school at 5 years.

They are key members of the primary healthcare team.

They may work in teams or have sole responsibility for a caseload. Their work is derived from the local area or a general practice list and are usually based in children’s centres, surgeries, community or health centres.
