The Department is working with community nurses and professional organisations as part of a development programme to scope a renewed model for community nursing, focusing on district nursing services. The professional organisations involved include the Queens Nursing Institute, Royal College of Nursing, Macmillan Nursing, Hospice UK, various practitioners, primary care trusts and service users.

We will consult with the profession, key stakeholders and service users as part of the development programme. The aim is for the initial scoping to be published early 2013.
