"Removal of School Nurse Provision"
About: Bromley Healthcare / School Nursing Bromley Healthcare School Nursing Bromley BR1 3LP
Posted by primary scool (as ),
Our experience with the School Nurse system has been entirely positive. It is a proactive and supportive service providing:
General advice and guidance
Specific advice linked to Public Health England guidance e. g. during a recent Measles outbreak
Support for children with additional needs in order to meet their health needs whilst in school
Advice and help on specific and acute child health care
General advice to support the healthy schools initiative
A route of access for parents to NHS provision for their children
They are a key stakeholder, within the Academy, in ensuring continued shared support in all health matters. Without this service we feel the continued physical and mental wellbeing of our children in our Academy will be compromised. A reactive provision would result in the children’s needs only being met when a crisis point is reached.
