Based at our practice but employed by Derbyshire Community Health Services (DCHS)
The nursing team provides specialist nursing to those in the community who are unable to get to the surgery for treatment such as wound care. They are also responsible for the ongoing health care needs of housebound patients and their families with a variety of conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, etc., and liaise with other providers of care in the community. Another large part of their role is supporting terminally ill patients who wish to be cared for in their own home. Their service also includes the promotion of continence and health education.
A health visitor is concerned with the health and well-being of families. Health promotion, early detection of ill health and monitoring of normal growth and development are her responsibility, with particular reference to mothers, babies and the under 5’s. She liaises closely with the GP’s, other members of the nursing team and professions allied to medicine, such as social workers, speech therapists and pre-school teacher counsellors. The health visitor has specialist knowledge of the facilities and resources available for families and children in the area.
