As well as providing general nursing, dressings, removal of sutures and blood tests. The team also have a mental health nurse who works alongside the wider team.

Outreach

Outreach is felt to be important because it shows an approachable face of healthcare to many people who have often had bad experiences. We know that this outreach brings many people into the HealthBus/HealthHub service and helps get people engaged with healthcare.

Social Prescriber

For many people, circumstances beyond the purely medical give rise to additional worries, issues and needs.  Our social prescriber work with patients giving them time to focus on “what matters to me” and take a holistic approach to their health and wellbeing. 

The Social Prescriber and Mental Health Nurse will work with patients who are lonely, have complex social needs, low-level mental health needs and long-term conditions.  They will support them, connecting them to non-medical community-based activities, meeting practical, social, and emotional needs including physical activities, arts and nature.
