Care in local communities: a new vision and model for district nursing
This vision and service model builds on ‘Compassion in practice’, the
national vision for nurses, midwives and care staff. It was developed
by a strategic partnership of the Department of Health, NHS
Commissioning Board Authority, The Queen’s Nursing Institute, alongside
district nurse leaders and practitioners. It sets out the foundations of
district nursing services, the developments and innovations that ensure
services can meet current and future needs, and the district nurse-led
team contribution to providing care and support in the community,
including peoples’ homes. It aims to be a resource for those designing
and providing local community health services, including nurse leaders,
health and wellbeing boards, clinical commissioning groups, and others
with an interest in developing integrated care for older people.
