Patients aged 75 years or over are offered an invitation to discuss any health or social issues with the District Nursing Team. Home visits can be arranged for those who are unable to attend the Medical Centre.
If appropriate referrals can be made to various agencies e.g. chiropody, social services, day care, physio & occupational therapy. Information is available on voluntary & support groups who help clients remain independent enabling them to live in their own homes with confidence.
The District Nurses offer assessments to patients who have problems with incontinence. This can be in either the surgery or at home, if more appropriate.
