Community Nurses

Community nurses are registered nurses who specialise in working with patients closer to home. Sometimes they visit patients at home and sometimes patients have to go to their community clinic.

These clinics are usually nearer and more convenient than going to the hospital. They carry out duties such as wound dressing, injections, post operative care, cancer care and lots more.

They can also provide health advice to parents and their relatives.

Our community nurses are based at Walkden Gateway and Little Hulton Health Centre.
