Help improve community nursing services for adults in England
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is working with the James Lind Alliance (JLA) to find out what the issues and gaps are in community nursing services, so that the NHS can understand how best to improve this service for adults in England. As part of this initiative, NIHR and JLA are seeking the views of adults with lived experience of community nursing, their family members and informal carers (including young carers) and asking them to complete a brief survey and share their views and experiences.
Services that community nurses commonly provide to help people stay independent include catheter/continence management, wound care, injections, advice and symptom management. This could be in your own home or in a clinic, and could be for a short time or over the longer term. More information, and the survey where you can share your views on community nursing services, can be found here.
