They are part of a team working along with GPs, Health Visitors, Practice Nurses and many specialist nurses across Angus. We also work jointly with Local Authority, Social Work, Early Supported Discharge/Prevention of Admission Team, Hospital Staff, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, Support Groups, Crossroads, Continence Advisory & Treatment Service, as well as many other agencies and can provide access or referral for services where appropriate.

The District Nursing Service operates from 8am until 10pm on a referral system basis for anyone who requires professional nursing assessment and/or care within their home or community care setting. To access this service please phone 01307 468889. One of the team will then contact or visit you to assess your needs. Your nursing plan of care, dressings and other equipment will be left for all the team to use. Please keep them together and in a safe place.

Health Visitors are trained nurses who have undergone additional training and who have expertise and experience in child health and development and family health in general.

Other members of the Health Visiting Team include Early Years Support Workers who are trained to work with children in the early years and administration staff who provide support to them. 

All team members work together to ensure that you receive the service you need.

Please feel free to ask your Health Visitor any questions that you have when you meet.

Health Visitors spend a lot of their working day on home visits however all teams have answerphones and will aim to get back to you as soon as they can if you leave a message by calling 01307 468888.  Health Visiting is a Monday - Friday service, offering both home visiting and clinic contacts.
