School Nursing Service

Arrangements during Covid-19 Pandemic

The School Nursing Service continues to be available.

Whilst schools remain closed due to COVID – 19 we have been unable to complete routine health reviews

The completion of reviews will be dependent on schools re-opening. This will be kept under review and parents will be informed.

The School Nurse continues to be available via telephone, virtual / face time, and can offer appointments for home visit or clinic

When visiting your home or clinic we follow the Public Health Agency advice & precautions. Ideally the school nurse would just be seeing yourself and your child.

If you have any concerns about yourself and/or your family’s health, you can contact school nurse in your area.  Details are included on this web page.

Alternately contact the School Nurse Helpline on 028 9083 1454 Monday- Friday, 9-5pm.
