Community Nurses

The community nursing service (commonly known as District Nurses) provides nursing care to people in their own homes.  It is mainly for people who are confined to their home and who are over 18 years of age.

The team provides healthcare that enables individuals to increase and maintain their independence, while remaining at home. 

They work closely with social services, GPs, other healthcare professionals and also patients and carers.  The service makes sure that patients have the care, help and support they need, while maintaining their comfort and dignity. 



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 under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.

Contact your surgery reception for details about the health visitors clinic.

Attached Staff


There are physiotherapy sessions at Bottesford, Harlaxton and Waltham. Simply ask reception for an appointment with one of the doctors who will be able to refer you to our in-house service.


A community chiropodist regularly attends the Bottesford surgery. Ask at reception and complete a chiropody request form. Alternatively, please make an appointment to discuss with one of our GP’s.
