Community Staff Nurse

Our team of community nurses provide key services to our housebound patients in the community. They also have an important role in assessing and treating patients discharged from hospital after operations or serious illness. The community nurses are in daily contact with the doctors and other team members and often take the lead role in treating patients at home. We also involve a wider team, such as the Douglas McMillan nurses where appropriate.


A Mental health practitioner, Support time recovery worker, Counsellor, Physician Associate Social prescriber and Health and wellbeing coach have sessions at the surgery or over the telephone. Your Doctor may suggest referral to one of them. Please feel free to ask for a referral if you think it is appropriate and the Doctor has not suggested it.
