Within Primary, Community and Intermediate Care (PCIC), nursing makes up the majority of the workforce, with nurses in the community having varied and dynamic roles.
Month on month, our community nurses deliver safe and effective care in people’s homes, community settings, GP surgeries and clinics every day that enables them to remain in the comfort of their own homes and prevent hospital admission.
Here’s how many patients across Cardiff and Vale our Community Nursing Teams supported in July.
Undertook 17,687 visits to patients within the community.
Are currently supporting 3,789 patients to receive safe and effective care at home.
Ensured that 1,652 patients were receiving safe and appropriate care within community and care home settings.
Accepted 233 patients who require therapy support within the community and helped 89 patients to leave hospital early.
Helped 11 patients to leave hospital early and return home.
The work of our community teams does not go unrecognised, and we would like to say thank you to the teams and wards who continue to make the most of our community services.
