A referral from your GP is required to access community nursing services. GPs can make a referral by phone on 02 4356 9400 or fax on 02 4356 9401.
Community nursing provides a range of services including comprehensive health assessment, wound management, palliative care, continence care and stomal therapy.
Services are provided seven days per week from 8 am to 4.30pm. Services may be limited on weekends and public holidays.
Through early recognition of illness and disease and prompt intervention community nurses work with clients to slow progress of the disease, minimise its effects and assist the client to achieve and maintain an optimum level of independence or a peaceful death when life can no longer be sustained.
