Coronavirus - Changes to our services

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, some of our non-urgent services have been temporarily suspended and others are operating with reduced hours. Find out about service changes here.

Telford School Nurses

School Nurses are qualified registered nurses or midwives with specialist training and experience in public health for children, young people and families.

Share this:

We offer parents, carers, children and young people a confidential service which means we do not tell anyone what you tell us unless it is with your consent. However we will have to share information if we are told that anyone under the age of eighteen has been or is being harmed in any way. This will always be discussed with the young person before it happens.

Who are we?

The School Nursing Service takes over their care from the Health Visitor at the age of 5.

Child health records are handed over to the school nursing service from the Health Visitor and remain with the School Nursing Service until young people leave school or sixth form.

We offers parents, carers, children and young people a confidential service which means we do not tell anyone what you tell us unless it is with your consent. However we will have to share information if we are told that anyone under the age of eighteen has been or is being harmed in any way. This will always be discussed with the young person before it happens.
