Children's Complex Needs Nursing service


The Nursing Services exist to provide skilled evidence based care to children with complex or additional needs in the community, and all children who attend a special school. This provides support for the parents, carers and school staff in meeting the health needs of children with complex needs.  

The service is provided by a team of highly skilled staff made up of Senior Nurses, Staff Nurses and Health Care Support Workers.

We work in partnership with other agencies statutory, private and voluntary sectors in order to meet the complex health needs of children and their families within the Trust’s footprint. 

The Nursing Service will work in identifying those children who are at risk of being harmed either physically or emotionally and act accordingly in line with child protection policy.
