Clinical Nurse Specialists
We have two dedicated teams of Clinical Nurse Specialists who work at Saint Catherine’s, who specialise in neurology and community palliative care.
Clinical Nurse Specialists for Neurology
The community neurology nurses provide specialist palliative neurology advice and guidance to patients in their own homes. Working with hospital teams and other community services, they support neurology patients and their families, including those with illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease, Motor Neurone Disease and Multiple Sclerosis, to cope with the progression of their disease.
Clinical Nurse Specialists in Community Palliative Care
Saint Catherine’s community specialist palliative care nurses work alongside patients and families enabling them to achieve their personal choices and discuss future care planning. The team provide specialist skills in helping to manage difficult physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual concerns.
We work closely with GPs, district nurses and other members of the health and social care teams to ensure that care and support is well co-ordinated.
We feel privileged to see patients in their own homes and work alongside patients and families to meet their individual wishes.
