What we do

We work within a skill mix team and are based in a variety of community settings. School nurses work in integrated locality health visiting and school nursing teams. School nurses also work with the wider multi professional team across the borough of Rochdale.

We provide a wide range of care, advice and support including screening, immunisations, health assessments, health promotion activities, health advice and signposting, specialist support and much more.

Some examples of what school nurses can support with include emotional health and wellbeing packages of care, including support with anger issues, anxiety, stress and low mood and specific support with physical health needs for example enuresis (Bedwetting).

The school nurses can support parents, carers and educational staff to ensure their childs health needs are being met and facilitate any training needs that have been idenified.

We offer confidential advice in a variety of settings on the request of young people and facilitate referrals to appropriate services as needed.  School nurses offer regular drop in sessions in schools, colleges and local health clinics.
