What we do
The nurse-led team supports children and young people’s healthcare needs in a special school setting to enable them to access the curriculum. The team ensures that pupils’ healthcare needs are met through direct nursing care and provide training and support to education and care staff the help them meet those needs.
We work in partnership with the multi-professional team, which consists of the Education Team, a Community Paediatrician, Physiotherapist, Speech therapists, Dietician and any other professionals involved in the child’s care. We co-ordinate healthcare clinics held within the special school settingschool.
We also work collaboratively with parents, carers and members of the multi-professional team to ensure that children and young people achieve the best possible outcomes. Our team provides family support and promote the health and wellbeing of those children and young people in their care.
