Substance Misuse Nurses
Substance misuse nurses are mental health nurses who specialise in helping people with alcohol or drug problems. Substance misuse nurses recognise it can be very difficult to change established habits and would initially meet with a patient to discuss to what extent alcohol or drugs are a problem for an individual and to look at what treatment options may be suitable.
They work Monday to Friday 9.00am - 5.00pm. Please ask your doctor to refer you if you want help to address an alcohol or drug problem. Alternatively, the nurses can be contacted directly at 01349 869231.
School nurses provide health care in the school setting for all children from primary 1 to secondary 6. This includes screening, health education, counselling, 'drop-ins' and home visits.
