Do you want to be part of a team that consistently strives to deliver high quality care to patients in their own home?

Do you want to be proud of the care you deliver?

As a District Service we are proud of the feedback we receive:

The District Nursing Team saw me through one of the toughest fights of my life and I can honestly say that without their dedication, diligence and humour I don't know where I would be. Their attention to detail whilst dealing with COVID and also dealing with me (a really stroppy but humorous and grateful patient) makes them worth more than their weight in gold.

If this connects with you and your passion for nursing we want to hear from you.
