The District Nursing team are based at Parkgrove Medical Practice. They can be contacted directly on 0131 336 0979 daily 08:00 - 16:00. An answering machine is available if the district nurses are out on calls. This tape is checked at regular intervals during the day. For emergencies after 16:30 call NHS 24 on 111.
Care by Evening and Night Nursing Service is arranged by the district nurses. The district nurses visit patients in their own homes and assess their healthcare needs, providing and co-ordinating a holistic and quality-driven service to patients within the practice. They work closely with carers, GPs, hospitals, hospice services, Social Work, Physiotherapy and Podiatry Services.
The district nursing team would be happy to discuss any further details about the community nursing service in the North West locality of Edinburgh.
