School Nursing Service

How can we help you?

The school nursing service is a team led by qualified nurses with specialist training in public health and is part of the 0-19 (25 SEND) Health and Wellbeing service.

We lead and deliver the Healthy Child Programme for 5-19 year olds and have an additional role to support young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities up to the age of 25.

School nurses work closely with other professionals and agencies including schools and other health and education services. School nurses are skilled in spotting health problems or concerns early they then provide support to ensure these needs are met.

School Nurses offer a confidential service and can support with emotional health and wellbeing, healthy lifestyles and relationships and staying safe. We can see children, young people and their parents/carers in schools or in their homes to offer advice and support. We can arrange virtual meetings in situations where Covid 19 may restrict face to face contacts.

The service is flexible to meet the needs of children, young people and their families, offering interventions to reduce vulnerabilities and ensuring children and young people can meet their full potential.

Further information is available on the 0-19 Health and Well-being website.

To arrange contact with a school nurse call our Single Point of Contact on 0800 0199951 or make an appointment at an E-Clinic.  This service is available to any young person aged 11-19 years.

School nurses in North Lincolnshire can provide confidential online advice to young people who need their help, thanks to an easily downloaded free eClinic app.

RDaSH eClinic (11-19) is an instant messaging app enabling registered users aged 11 to 19 to schedule a confidential online appointment with their school nurse, where they can have a ‘live’ chat about any health issues they are experiencing.

The eClinic app can be downloaded to any Apple or Android device using the App Store or Google Play Store.
