Specialist Health Visiting for Vulnerable Adults

Telephone:+44 1624 665941

The specialist health visitor focuses on vulnerable adults who have complex health needs which do not require input from the District Nursing Service in order that they may stay safe, be healthy, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and prosper.

A vulnerable adult is a person aged over 18 years or over 'who is or may be in need of community care services by reason of mental or other disability, age or illness and who is or who may be unable to take care of themselves, or unable to protect themselves against significant harm or exploitation'.

The service operates Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, except bank holidays.
