Community Nurses

District nursing services are provided by the Cumbria Primary Care Trust (PCT) and are based at Longtown Medical Centre. You can contact them either through reception or directly on 01228 791406. If you have an illness or incapacity that means that you need nursing care in your own home, one of the district nurses will visit you. Patients who are likely to benefit from this service include the housebound, the elderly, people with a terminal illness, and those who have recently been discharged from hospital. District nurses provide wound care, palliative care, continence advice, health promotion advice and advice on co-ordinating care packages.
