How our service can help you
District (community) nursing teams assess, plan and provide nursing clinical care to people who are housebound due to ill health.
They provide integrated, holistically focussed care to meet patients needs in their own home, which also includes people residing in care homes that are not registered as nursing homes. Community nurses support end of life care, post operative care, management of long term conditions, wound care, catheter care and medication management, including teaching self administration of insulin and catheter care.
The community nursing team works closely with GP’s, acute hospitals to support discharges, adult social care and link with voluntary services.

A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
At Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, we value the often life-long support carers provide and recognise them as equal care partners. We want to offer as much guidance and reassurance as possible, to help you in your caring role. You can find general information and support for adult carers, young carers and parent carers by following this link.
