Your school nurse service


During 2015, we reviewed the school nursing service and undertook consultations with young people, parents and carers, and professionals working with children and young people.

Your feedback provided us with valuable insight, and along with new government guidance, has allowed us to develop a new school nursing service that reflects the current health and wellbeing needs of children and young people in County Durham. 

Next step

Changes to the service will be rolled out during summer 2016, when we will be working closely with schools and communities of learning to provide a range of universal and targeted school-age public health services to children, young people and their families in County Durham. A county wide marketing campaign will make sure children, young people and families are made aware of the new school nurse service. 

The school nursing service for County Durham will now be provided by Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust who will continue to work with the existing and dedicated school nurse workforce.
