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.
School Nursing Service can work both in and out of school to help provide advice and support to improve health & wellbeing through a universal service for all children 5-19 years . Your school nurse will share lots of information for example
- Maintaining health and development
- Emotional health and wellbeing
- Keeping safe
- Healthy lifestyles
There are ten school nursing teams who work across the Trust.
