Dumfries Parish Nursing Service Launches

Thursday January 26

A special service will be held at St Mary’s Greyfriars’ Church, Dumfries this Sunday (January 29) to launch the first Parish Nursing service in the south of Scotland.

Nurse Catriona Logan will be commissioned to lead the service, one of only ten in Scotland and around 90 in the UK.

Catriona said: “Parish nursing is a holistic approach to whole person health care which includes the spiritual needs of the client.

“We are all registered nurses who are registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and are fully insured as well as being PVG checked with the church authorities.”

Catriona recently retired from NHS Tayside where she was a Senior Charge Nurse. She trained as a Parish Nurse with Parish Nursing UK, which is part of an international nursing movement dating back to the 1980s.

Fiona Armstrong, Lord Lieutenant of Dumfries, and the Rev Dr Helen Wordsworth, the founder of and Director of Parish Nursing in the United Kingdom will attend the service.
