Acute Demand Liaison Service
The Acute Demand Liaison team works with Christchurch Hospital’s Acute Demand Service to assess patient suitability for an early discharge. Services include short term intravenous antibiotics, cellulitis treatment and heart failure monitoring.
Home Dialysis Service
Working with the Home Dialysis Unit at Christchurch Hospital, the Nurse Maude community haemodialysis service assists patients in their homes.
Care ranges from needling and connection so patients can manage their own dialysis, to a full service which includes needling, connection, assessment during the dialysis period, connection and cleaning after dialysis has finished.
If you need assistance with dialysis or think you would benefit from this service, contact the Home Dialysis Unit on 03 364 0610 or Nurse Maude.

Specialty Clinics
Clinic Hours: 8:00am - 5:00pm, Monday to Friday (by appointment only)

Stomal Therapy
Information, advice and support is available if you have, or are expecting to have a stoma. Stomal therapy supports you to live with a stoma independently, comfortably and with dignity.
The comprehensive service includes education prior to surgery, visits (in hospital and at home after discharge), arranging ostomy equipment, appliances and/or stomal supplies, clinics for regular checks and assessments, access to a dietitian and referral to other health professionals and agencies.

Complex Wound Service
Nurses assess, manage and advise on chronic, complex wounds and leg ulcers in our specialist wound care clinics. They also provide care plans, follow-up and prevention programmes such as compression hosiery. A dietitian is available if required.
We also provide consultation and advice to GP's, community and practice nurses, rest homes and private hospitals.

Continence Service
We provide support, assessment, treatment and education for anyone over four years of age with a continence issue, including difficulty getting to the toilet on time, frequent visits to the toilet, bladder leakage when coughing, sneezing or exercising, or bowel leakage.

Diabetes Service

The service provides access to specialist nurses and a dietitian. Appointments are by arrangement in partnership with your GP Practice.
