Community Matrons - Knowsley

​Who we are
Our community matrons support people living with long term conditions by providing a range of nursing services in patients own homes.

Staff help to promote a quick recovery from an episode of illness due to long term conditions and a return to stable health and maximum independence.

The team aims to:

  • Help reduce length of stay of necessary hospital admissions
  • Integrate all elements of care, improve patients' quality of life and ability to function
  • Improve end of life care
  • Identify and address issues across health and social care and other providers using a co-ordinated approach to prevent duplication and omission
  • Monitor and review
  • All patients are assessed, monitored and reviewed in their homes
