    School Nursing Service

    School Nurses work in collaboration with schools, GP’ s youth services and many other community services to support the needs of children, young people and their families

    Every school has a named School Nurse .You can ask the School Nurse anything:  if they can’t help you they will try and find someone who can. The School Nurse can also listen to you if you are worried about being hurt by someone you know or who lives with you.
