Community matrons

Our skilled team of senior nurses will work alongside your GP to help to keep you at home and out of hospital.

If you are referred to us, we will provide care for you on a programme up to 12 weeks, where we will create a care plan, help you manage your illness and support you at home. We will:

  • carry out an assessment and put a plan in place for your care
  • assess and prescribe your medication
  • assess your physical and mental health
  • refer you to other services if required

After the  programme, you will be referred back to your GP.

We provide care across Stockton and Hartlepool from Monday to Friday, between 8.30am and 5pm.

You have done so much for us in a very short space of time, it is much appreciated.

Making a referral

Referrals can be made from GP practices only.
