Community Nurses

There is a team of district nurses who work alongside the GPs and surgery staff. They provide skilled nursing care and advice, when requested, to patients, relatives and carers. Unlike the practice nurses their services are focussed on people who are housebound and includes care as diverse as minor dressings to care of the terminally ill at home. The nurses also work in co-operation with other health care agencies.

They can be contacted directly on 01323 446987.

Health Visitors

Health visitors are qualified nurses with special training and experience in child health, health promotion and education. They offer practical support and advice in a host of diverse situations. Many people think that health visitors only visit new babies and their families at home. This is not the complete picture. Health visitors aim to promote the health of the whole community.

The team can be contacted on 01435 865811 and they also run a clinic in Herstmonceux Village Hall between 9.30am and 10.30am on the first Wednesday each month.
