Community Psychiatric Nurses
The CPN team is responsible for caring for patient’s mental illness within the community and for following up patients discharged from hospital suffering from mental illness, e.g. depression, schizophrenia.
A dietician gives dietary and nutritional advice to patients with special health needs. Referrals are arranged by the doctors.
The speech therapist deals with delayed language in children and speech problems associated with illnesses e.g. after strokes. Referral is arranged by the doctor or health visitor. Referrals can also be made, where appropriate to social workers.
