Community Health Nursing

Community health nursing

Promoting health and well being

Community health nurses help with general health support at home. We work as part of a team to help you understand and manage your health care, and provide links to other services if you need them.

The services can be provided at Connect Health & Community, and/or in the home. We might also suggest activities which are provided at other locations. Your community health nurse will work with you, your family if required, your GP and other practitioners to provide a health plan for you.
