They also have an important role in caring for patients with terminal illness and offer help and support to the patient and their families. Finally, they provide attention to dressings, injections and ear care. The District Nurses are now working from the Oxford Centre; they have a dedicated administration team who deal with all their queries and appointments. Their contact number is 0191 2380044.
