About NDNS


Newcastle & District Nursing Service was established in 1975 by Sr Jan Stevens who recognised the need for community nurses to compliment the over-extended health system at the time. From its inception Newcastle & District Nursing Service set down and followed a high standard philosophy code of conduct. NDNS was the first private nursing agency established in the region.

In 1990 Sue purchased NDNS, continuing to provide nursing and home care services within the region. The business has grown successfully over the past 20 years and to this day Sue continues in the role of CEO and DON of NDNS. In 2006 NDNS relocated to new premises at Shortland to accommodate the growth of the business and expand in other areas. 

NDNS is dedicated in coordinating services to meet the needs of our clients with the ultimate outcome to allow them to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. The NDNS team is very loyal and dedicated to their work. This gives continuity of care to our clients resulting in excellent service delivery.

The Staff of NDNS have touched many lives of people in the Hunter in a positive way. NDNS will continue to strive to accommodate the needs of the community.
