Chronic/recurring health problems

School-age

Children and young people can be referred to the School Nursing service where there are concerns about a child or young person’s health. If they have a complex need or a long term health condition school nurses can work together with the child/young person, parent/carers, schools and the health professionals who are involved in their care, to help them get the support that they need.  Additional resources to support a child or young persons health and well-being can be found on Southern health’s School Nursing web pages.

The child/ young person can be referred to the School Nurse following discussion with parent/ carer/ young person.
