Who we are
Our community nurses provide nursing care and treatment to patients in their own homes (including residential homes) 24 hour a day, 365 days a year. 

We treat patients who are housebound or require treatments where a home visit is necessary. Examples of the care we provide includes:  
  • Holistic assessment to look at all areas of your physical and mental wellbeing 
  • Wound care
  • End of life care
  • Continence care
  • Administration of injections / medications
  • Ear care
Community nurses also run treatment rooms for patients who are able to leave their home and for whom it is clinically appropriate to do so.

Following referral, your community nurse will undertake an assessment to discuss your needs and agree a care plan with you.

Who is our service for?
Our service is available for any person over the age of 18 who is registered with a St Helens GP.

Who do we work in partnership with?
Community nurses work closely with patients, carers, GPs and other health and social care professionals to help you to live as independently as possible.

You can be referred to the service by your GP or other health and social care professional. We also accept self-referral.
