Guy's and St Thomas' seeking local home for district nurse base
We are currently in the process of restructuring our community (district) nursing service, and as part of this we are looking for new office bases in community settings to allow nurses to be closer to their patients and to build up networks within local neighbourhoods.
We are searching for spaces in the Herne Hill area, and wonder if any local businesses or organisations have any individual rooms in the station which they would be able to rent to us on a permanent basis?
The room would need to be private (as nurses may need to discuss patient identifiable information), accessible 08:00 – 20:00 7 days a week and be large enough to fit a team of 8 – 12 nurses.
No patients would be seen on-site, this would purely be used as an office base. If you may have something suitable, or even know of somewhere that may be, then please do get in touch.
The trust hope that this could be a valuable source of income for any local venue or space which has suffered during the lockdown period, and also helps bring the district nurses and related organisations closer to their patients, as they will be working from a base so much closer to where their patients live.
