Community Nurses

District nurses play a crucial role in the primary health care team. They visit people in their own homes or in residential care homes, providing care for patients and supporting family members.

As well as providing direct patient care, district nurses have a teaching role, working with patients to enable them to care for themselves or with family members teaching them how to give care to their relatives.

The district nurses from the Scarborough, Whitby, Ryedale Virtual Ward look after our patients.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children 0 - 5 years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social well being.



The Health Visitors for Ryedale are based at Train Lane, Pickering, YO18 8DX.
