School nurses

If your child is in school, you will have a school nurse and you can contact them at your nearest children’s centre but they will soon be moving to the new adolescent hubs where the council’s youth workers are also based. You can also contact the Young People’s Service

Between 9-5pm if you wish to speak to our school nurses about any worries you may have about your own wellbeing, our School Health Team number 01254 585000, press option 2. Then depending on what area your school is in, press that option:-
