District Nursing Referrals

What we do

Our District Nurses work 7 days a week, 365 days a year and are accessible 24 hours a day providing care to vulnerable and housebound people within their own home or home environment. Each GP Practice in Sefton has an identified District Nursing team to:

  • Manage and deliver care to patients with complex health needs
  • Support and advice to patients and their carers in relation to their ongoing treatment
  • Wound management including leg ulcers
  • Palliative care for the terminally ill and care of the dying
  • Bereavement support
  • Health promotion for individuals, carers and communities
  • Referral to other services if deemed appropriate e.g. Social Services, Occupational Therapy



Patients need to have clear needs for skilled nursing intervention.
