Nursing in the community - a film by Health Education England

District nurses carry out a huge range of vital work with patients in the community every single day. They provide care in people’s homes, communities, GP surgeries, clinics – and do vital outreach work with people who may not have a secure home.

Health Education England created a film to showcase the incredible work these nurses do. You can watch the video below:
