What is Parish Nursing?
Parish Nursing is an established mechanism by which Christians have demonstrated the love of Jesus by providing holistic care to people in need, regardless of background.

A Message from Your Parish Nurse:
It is a privilege to be appointed into the role of Croxley Green Parish Nurse and I am looking forward to getting to know you – the residents and parishioners of Croxley. This Parish Nurse Service will support our already established NHS colleagues such as GPs and community practitioners to promote the health and wellbeing of individuals and families. We are also beginning to gather a team of volunteers who will further enhance the Service as it develops.
The beauty of Parish Nursing is that it truly is whole person care, taking into consideration the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of individuals. Parish Nurses are uniquely placed to be able to attend to the wellbeing of the ‘whole person’, irrespective of their faith, or no faith, their age, sex, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or ability. There are almost 100 Parish Nurses working across the UK, all are qualified nurses who are registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Since commencing the role on 4th April 2019, I have been meeting various groups of people, making home visits and familiarising myself with the local community. As with any new service, Croxley Parish Nurse Service will take some time to take shape and grow.
As we develop this service, the Trustees and I welcome your comments and suggestions.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or All Saints’ Church, c/o The Vicarage, Croxley Green, WD3 3HJ.
Please note that I work one day per week, usually on a Thursday or Friday. I will respond to any contact as quickly as is possible.
