Your nursing needs will be met by highly skilled manager and qualified nursing care team who will be available to them 24 hours a day. All individuals with any nursing needs are welcome in St Georges. Our approach to nursing care is based on the use of individualised person centred care plans. These plans are completed with the individuals we support and their families, friends or advocates, our care plans will help ensure that each person we look after is treated with respect and that their independence and choices are maximised. Care at St. George's will be supervised at all times by a Qualified Nurse. You and your family are invited to take part in the care planning and be involved in all decisions around your future care. The Nurse in charge will be happy to discuss any queries with you or your family. You will be allocated a named nurse and keyworker on your arrival at St Georges.
