Parish Nurses are Registered nurses who provide wholistic healthcare which can include: health education, screening, support during short and long-term conditions and at end of life, and is underpinned by intentional spiritual care.


On average it takes about 6 months - 1 year to establish a project and build community links.


It can cost up to £1,115 to set up a parish nursing service with an additional cost of £342 per nurse for the initial preparation course (online) or £595 (residential). Thereafter either an annual contribution of £595 each year or £50 per monthly payment to run the project in afflliation with Parish Nursing Ministries UK. The nurse's expenses and continuing personal development costs need to be covered, and hourly payment if it's a paid post.


Parish Nurses help churches and Christian organisations to build good relationships with other local health providers, in both urban and rural settings and across all community demographics in England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. These include working with the elderly, children and families, asylum seekers, the homeless and in poor inner-city settings.


Parish Nursing Ministries UK provide a quality initial 5-day course, leading to certification as a Parish Nurse. PNMUK supports the nurses with their ongoing professional development and also supports churches/organisations to establish and sustain accredited Parish Nursing services.


Parish Nurses visit people in their own homes and often need space to hold clinics and confidential consultations. They need a mobile phone, secure storage for confidential records and a few items of medical equipment such as a blood pressure machine.


All Parish Nurses are Registered Nurses and the hours they do, even if voluntary, count toward their Registration. They can also have volunteer helpers to support their work.
