Community Midwives

Community midwives tend to give maternity care outside the hospital. They may give antenatal care in local clinics or visit women in their homes. They can attend women in labour or giving birth at home, or may accompany women to hospital to give birth. They also visit women and their new babies in their homes for up to 28 days following the birth.

Community Nurses

District Nurses
District nurses play a crucial role in the primary health care team. They visit people in their own homes or in residential care homes, providing care (e.g. dressing, taking blood for testing) for patients and supporting family members. They are also very involved in palliative care at home

As well as providing direct patient care, district nurses also have a teaching role, working with patients to enable them to care for themselves or with family members teaching them how to give care to their relatives

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.

Counsellors

The counsellor provides one to one counselling on various mental health issues by helping to create a setting in which the client feels safe to explore the deeper dimensions of their experience.
