The Swansea Bay University Health Board employs pharmacists, physiotherapists, district nurses and health visitors that regularly work with us and Bay Health Cluster to help deliver your care.
The district nursing team consists of sisters, staff nurses and enrolled and auxiliary nurses. The nurses are based in a Local Central Hub.
Their duties include visiting patients of any age in their homes, giving practical assistance or offering professional advice. Each patient’s needs are assessed and the care and treatment is planned accordingly. District nursing sisters are experienced registered general nurses with a certificate or diploma in district nursing.
If you need a district nurse to visit you at home, or for any other district nursing enquiries, you can contact them on 01792 343360.
