Study of the Implementation of a New Community Health Nurse Role in Scotland

This report details the findings of a study exploring the implementation of the new community nursing role which was piloted in three NHS Boards in Scotland.


The researchers would like to record their thanks to everyone who was involved in helping to organise this study in each of the three National Health Service pilot sites; in particular the Directors of Nursing, the Lead Nurses and administrative staff who were extremely supportive. We would also like to thank all the community nurses and their managers who so readily shared their experiences and views with us. Finally, we are indebted to colleagues on the Research Advisory Group for their support and guidance throughout.
