We provide a range of specialist services across the county to support to people with a wide range of conditions.

These include:

  • specialist nursing for people living with neurological conditions including Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy
  • a falls prevention team, and specialist nurses whose focus is on fragility fractures and osteoporosis.
  • a continence team working with people who have continence problems - these can be suffered at any age, for example by people who have had surgery.
  • a specialist team for people who have a stoma (a surgically created opening which allows waste to leave the body)
  • heart failure service
  • cardiac rehabilitation team
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) team working to support people in the community, and prevent hospital admission (also care for people requiring oxygen at home)
