The Community Kit Bag
Preventing infection. Enhancing identity. Improving efficiency.
Whether it’s using supermarket ‘bags for life’, carrying more kit than a pack horse, not having the right dressings or unsterile environments, we all appreciate the challenges our district nurses face. The result of passionate collaboration between front line NHS district nurses, design teams, and infection control teams, the Community Kit Bag is a long awaited, flexible multi-purpose kit bag system designed to overcome these challenges.

Why district nurses love our Community Kit Bags
Our district nursing team has seen many benefits since introducing the Community Kit Bag. Not only is the bag compliant with infection control, but patients feel confident that nurses know what they are doing because they have got everything in one place. I also think the district nurses and the community staff nurses who use the bag feel quite proud that they’ve got their own kit bag, and that it’s got our own logo on, as we are proud of the organisation that we work for.
From an infection control point of view, the bags are brilliant for us. They’re clear and every part of the bag is wipeable, meaning we can wipe the bags down, take them into a patient’s home and as we come back out we can give them a good clean. I also love how organised the bags keep us as a service. The bags make kit quick and easy to access as everything is colour coded, so nurses know which bags to use when they’re seeing certain patients.
