Health and wellbeing

Our team works with young people to support their physical and emotional wellbeing

Our Health and Wellbeing team provides health care for Swanwick Lodge’s young people. They are on-site Monday to Friday from 9am to 8pm.

This NHS service, provided by Avon & Wiltshire Partnership Trust, includes:

  • nurses
  • support workers
  • General Practitioner
  • psychiatrist
  • psychologist
  • other visiting health professionals

We assess the health care needs of our young people using the Comprehensive Health Assessment Tool (CHAT). This involves the young person in their care planning as much as possible.

We work alongside the Looked After Child reviewing process and liaise with other health services residents are already working with. When residents move on, we pass on their health information to their next placement.
