Locality Visiting Nurses
We have a team of three Locality Visiting Nurses who are currently working with the Dereham Practices providing on the day home visits to those patients who are over 65years and are unable to come to the Surgery to see the Doctor. All three are very experienced nurses who are able to assess patients within their homes.
Community Midwives work with the surgery to care for mothers before and after delivery.
They run two clinics a week at Orchard Surgery on a Tuesday and Thursday Afternoon
We have a District Nursing team who work with the Surgery to care for our Housebound patients.
They are all experienced and well qualified to assess the immediate and long term need of patients and their families in the community.
