Outreach community nurses
Our Outreach nurses – previously known as Clinical Nurse Specialists – provide expert advice and support to patients and those closest to them.
The team visit patients at home and can now provide hands-on clinical care when required, as well as specialist advice on the complex physical and psychological effects of living with an incurable illness.
They work closely with other healthcare professionals involved with a patient’s care, such as GPs and District Nurses.
The Outreach team can help patients in a number of ways, including:
- Pain and symptom control
- Emotional issues
- Coordinating a patient’s care
- Appropriate advice
