The Children's Community Nursing service provides nursing care to children aged 0 to 18 years who have an identified nursing need. We offer community visits to children, young people and their families across Shropshire.

The service co-ordinates and manages packages of care for children and young people with complex health/nursing needs to maximise their opportunities and reach their full potential by providing:

  • Direct nursing care and treatment
  • Monitoring and review of care and treatment plans
  • Symptom management for life-limiting/life threatening conditions through to end-of-life care and support
  • Training, advice and support to the family and/or carers to enable them to continue providing on-going care
  • A resource for other professionals working with your child for information and advice on specialist/complex nursing care

The service operates Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm and provide care to four specific groups:

  • Complex health needs
  • Long-term conditions
  • Palliative care
  • Short term and acute care
