Community Matrons

Team picture of some of the Community Matrons

The Community Matrons provide help and support to adults with complex health problems.

Community Matrons and the Long Term Conditions Team provide care to patients who require a high level of support and help them to make choices about the care they receive.

Community Matrons help individuals over 18 years of age with complex health problems to achieve and maintain the best possible state of health for their condition and maximise their independence.

They work with colleagues to support patients to remain at home, avoiding inappropriate hospital admissions and facilitating early discharge for patients living with long term conditions.
