Special Needs School Nursing


The Special Needs School Nursing Service exists to provide advice, guidance and consultancy and appropriate clinical decisions and interventions. This will enable children with additional and complex health needs to receive  care and support from those who know them best, in a competent and timely way i.e. right person, right place, right time. This is expected to complement universal provision but not be part of universal delivery. The service is provided by a team of highly skilled qualified Nurses and Health Care Assistants working as part of the Children’s Complex Needs Nursing Service alongside the Complex Packages of Care and Children’s Complex Care & Assessment Team.
