Adult community nursing team

Adult community nursing team

The adult community nursing service provides professional nursing care in the community to adults over the age of 16 who are either housebound or have complex needs.

We aim to prevent unnecessary admissions to hospital and facilitate early discharge.

Our service is available 8am – 11pm, 365 days a year.

Our teams of nurses are based in different localities across Lambeth and Southwark. They are led by district nursing sisters and charge nurses who work with GP practices. Community matrons sit within the district nursing teams.

Our service provides:

  • Assessment and case management
  • Wound management
  • Leg ulcer clinics (in Southwark)
  • Palliative care
  • Nurse prescribing
  • Medicines management
  • Education and support for self care
  • Bladder and bowel management

Adults over the age of 16 who are either housebound or have complex needs. You must be registered with a GP in Southwark to see our adult community nursing team. The service is offered primarily to people who are housebound and unable to access nursing care from their GP practice or elsewhere.
