The School Nursing Service provides a drop-in at every secondary school in the county, where students can call by and see an NHS School Nurse without an appointment to discuss any health issue(s) that may be worrying them.
This may be a health worry like achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, relationships and sexual health, emotional and mental health, smoking, drugs, alcohol, immunisations, keeping safe and many other things. Everything that a student says to a School Nurse is confidential and private and not discussed with school staff unless this is agreed with the student, or there is a significant risk of harm.
A list of drop-in days and times can be found below. Sometimes a day and time may need to be changed at short notice, so please check with your school Reception if the School Nurse is not there.
If a student would prefer not to see a School Nurse face to face, a digital platform called Attend Anywhere can be used – just call a School Nurse to book an appointment. Alternatively, all students can text a School Nurse using ChatHealth if preferred.
For information about drop-ins, how to contact your School Nurse and ChatHealth, see below.
