How we can help

We aim to promote and maintain your independence at the level you want, for as long as you need until you reach independence and can manage your own condition . We want you to have a good quality of life, and will work with you to find ways for you to reach your personal goals.

You told us that you wanted our specialist nurses to provide you with a personal service that was individual to you. We see you as a person, not a condition or disease and will work closely with you to ensure the service we provide supports you in your individual needs.

Our nursing teams can support you during the key stages of your condition. This may include: :

  • Diagnosis – we can help you, and your family or carers, to better understand your condition, what you might be able to expect as well as advice on guidance on where you can get help and support.


  • Maintenance – we can help you find ways of managing your condition and any associated symptoms.


  • Crisis – we can support you when you’re more acutely unwell to help you regain your wellbeing and independence.


  • End-of-life care – if you have a terminal illness, we can help you live as well as possible until you die, as well as provide support for your family and loved ones.   


We work closely with other services in the Trust, such as our community care teams and community hospitals. We can help you to find the right services and support to meet your needs to ensure you continue to get the right level of care. 

Our specialist nursing services may not be available in every area, but we’re continuing to work with our stakeholders to ensure that we’re able to help in the areas
