What to expect?
You will be allocated a primary nurse, but from time to time you will see other nurses. If you are able to attend a clinic you will be requested to do so. The clinics operate an appointment system to ensure you are not kept waiting. If you aren’t able to attend a clinic the nurse will contact you following referral to arrange a visiting time at your home.
Please use e- Referrals to refer to the appropriate service. Referrals are triaged by a multidisciplinary team and actioned by the appropriate community team.
