The District Nursing Service provides skilled nursing care and support to housebound patients and residential homes. It enables the needs of the patients to be met and promotes independence and the prevention of unnecessary admission to hospital. Requests for District Nurse visits must be made through your Doctor in the first instance.
Palliative Care Team
This Practice works with local palliative care teams, including the Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted. Teams of specialist nurses with palliative care skills support and advise patients and their families, complementing other services provided in the community.
Our Hertfordshire midwife is at the surgery every Tuesday morning for booking-in appointments, and holds an antenatal clinic on Wednesday and Friday mornings. Our midwife covering our Buckinghamshire patients will be at the branch surgery at Rothschild Group Pitstone on Tuesday mornings.
