One of the Schools Postgraduate Diploma Specialist Practitioner District Nursing students was out promoting the role of the District Nurse at the North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership Care and Support Exhibition on the 7th. of October.
The North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership has been formed to integrate health and social care services into a single structure, in line with Scottish Government policy. The District Nursing service plays a key role in the Health and Social Care partnership with the District Nurse Service leading and providing care for people and their carers in their homes and community whilst effectively collaborating with other services and agencies.
