District Nursing is an essential front line service, delivering differing levels of care to a range of patients in their own home or a homely setting. North Glasgow District Nursing Night Service operates from Stobhill ACH and covers a population within North Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire in the Out of Hours period from 16:30 to 08:30. The District Nursing Night Service provides a range of planned and unplanned interventions with varying levels of complexities. 2 teams of 3 staff (band 6, band 5 and band 3) operate on a nightly basis.

There is a focus on ensuring that patients can be supported in their own homes especially if they choose to remain there at the end of life.
