The philosophy of the team is to encourage self-care in order to maintain independence.

For your security all nursing staff carry identification. Student nurses frequently accompany members of the team whilst on placement at the Practice. Please make a member of the team aware if you do not wish a student accompanied visit.
We would be grateful if patients make available liquid soap and a clean towel for the nurse visiting to wash his/her hands.
If you require dressings the items used will be prescribed. It is the responsibility of the patient or your family to collect the items or arrange delivery from your chemist.
