CHAT HEALTH – the texting service offered by the School Nursing team. This is a confidential way that 11-19yr olds can have a text conversation with one of our school nurses about any health issue, worry or concern they may have. When schools are shut and students don’t have their usual pastoral support, this service can be of great benefit to allay anxieties and emotional distress.
In addition there is information and guidance for students on the School Nursing Webpage which can be found here
