How do I know if I should see a community nurse or a doctor for a health assessment or referral?
Seeing a community nurse is a good option if you would like assessment about a non-urgent or long-term health condition. You should always see your doctor if you are very unwell or experience a sudden change in health.
What’s the difference between a community nurse and a nurse that works at a hospital or medical centre?
Community nurses help people to stay well or manage a health condition. They assess the client, offer advice about lifestyle and health options, and refer on to other health professionals who are experts in their field, such as dieticians or counsellors. Nurses in hospitals and medical centres tend to work more with people who are already sick.
