The Community Nursing team provide home or community based nursing care, treatment and support to people living in North East Lincolnshire who are housebound or have severe mobility problems which means they are unable to attend the surgery for treatment.
Our team works in partnership with local GP’s delivering care and support to people requiring on-going nursing care. They are based within several of the GP Practices throughout North East Lincolnshire.
The teams include Nurse Managers, Nurse Team Leaders, Complex Case Managers, Associate Practitioner, Community Nurses and Health Care Assistants and provide a range of long term condition management including leg dressings, injections and end of life care.
To provide in-home nursing support to individuals who through ill-health or mobility problems are not able to access treatment in their GP practice. We provide a high quality of care to our patients and carers during what can be a very difficult time due to poor health.
We understand that you may be anxious about letting someone into your home. All our community nurses will be wearing a Care Plus Group uniform and carrying ID which you can request to see at any time. If they cannot show you a Care Plus badge, please do not allow them into your home.
There will be an initial visit and assessment and following on from that a personal care plan will be drawn up based on your nursing care needs. The nurse will go through this with you and you will be asked to consent to it.
Some of our registered nurses have the ability to prescribe certain products to support your treatment.
Our nurses provide nursing care only, so other social care services are not included such as:
Our nurses will of course, be able to put you in touch with other service and providers who may be able to help you with these other needs.
