Adapting to meet the needs of our patients

At Family Nursing & Home Care, we are fortunate to have a team of fully qualified and dedicated Specialist Nurses who are constantly training and adapting to changes in treatments and practises for a range of serious and common medical problems.

Our Specialist Nursing team have years of practical experience and advanced training in their respective fields. Their specialisms include:

  • Tissue Viability and Wound Care
  • Continence and Stoma Care
  • Palliative Care

Our Specialist Nurses support the delivery of ‘best practice’ through a variety of staff education programmes, direct patient care and ensuring that the correct resources are available. They also monitor the standard of care that patients receive.
