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.
