Public Health Nursing

The Community Public Health Nursing Service (5-19) is led by a Specialist Public Health Nurse and includes Registered Nurses, Nursery Nurses, Health Care Assistants and Administrators. The team works alongside a variety of professionals including teachers, parents, carers, children and young people to promote and maintain good health.

Young people have a right to speak to a health professional and it be confidential except where there is a risk to themselves or others. However, we always encourage young people to speak to their parent or carer.

The Community Public Health Nursing Service (5-19) are an ‘all year round service’ for all 5-19 year olds and work in schools, health centres, homes and other venues to meet the needs of children and their families.
