Due to the current Covid 19 pandemic and school closures, The School Nursing Service is having to adapt our offer slightly.

Our School Nursing workforce has undergone redeployment  due to Covid-19 and therefore we are unable to undertake our usual drop-in clinics at this time, however, we will continue to offer health support and advice for parents of school age children by telephone.

If parents or young people have any concerns they can contact the School Nursing Service via the Pulse text messaging service on 07491163276. Or parents can contact the service  via telephone call, on 0300 123 6629  – where your call be will forwarded to a member of the School Nursing team. Please note that due to redeployment of team members this may not be the Nurse who works with your specific school.

For up to date advice about Covid19/Coronavirus please check the Public Health England website: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/public-health-england

VACCINATION PROGRAMME UPDATE

Due to Coronavirus our immunisation programme is currently postponed .  Once the Government reinstates school attendance for all,  we will be rearranging any sessions that have been delayed. We will, of course, be reviewing this situation in line with Government guidance and recommendations. If you have any questions please contact us via: snhs.childrensimmunisationteam@nhs.net
