Thornbury rapid response community service

Nobody likes to go into hospital and with growing pressures on the NHS; we believe that it is more important than ever to facilitate access to high quality, clinical care at home and in the community.

Thornbury Nursing’s specialist community service offers temporary nursing and care support for clients at home and in the community, where there are gaps in their current care provision. Our team of community nurses are ready to step in to support discharge plans, help prevent hospital admission, maintain client safety and support uncertain rosters.

With over 30 years’ experience, we’re best positioned to support you in reducing hospital admissions and retaining the best quality care for your clients.

Our service offers:

  • Ad-hoc staffing to cover shortfalls in existing shift rotas
  • Backfilling for interim cover during recruitment periods
  • Rapid response to facilitate early discharge and to avoid hospital admission
  • Assistance in stabilising staffing in long term complex care packages
  • Support for both adults and paediatrics
  • A nurse-led team contactable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

We’re committed to providing the best quality.

We scored an outstanding Diamond result in our recent audit, conducted by Neuven Audit Solutions; an independent auditor who specialise in quality checking UK nursing agencies. Click here to read the full report.
