School Nursing Hubs

Service update

Due to Covid-19, school nursing hubs are currently being delivered online via Microsoft Teams.  

The School Nursing Service is offering a new style of supporting parents in the form of School Nursing Hubs. Parents who are referred to our service or who self-refer are invited to a group with other parents who have similar worries.

The group is facilitated by our Health and Wellbeing Assistants who are trained in the Solihull parenting approach and key public health topics, so will be able to offer professional support and advice. The Health and Wellbeing Assistant may know of a local organisation or voluntary group that may be of interest to the parent, so will signpost or refer them.

About the hubs

There is much evidence that suggests parents really benefit from meeting other parents with similar challenges with the opportunity of building relationships, sharing ideas and support in future years.  

The hubs will usually have a theme of healthy lifestyles relating to topics such as healthy eating and activity or your child’s behaviour related topics, such as anxiety and sleep.

When Covid restrictions are fully lifted and we are able to return to normal service, the hubs will usually be held in schools or sometimes in other community settings such as health centres or libraries.

You can attend any Hub, it doesn’t matter if your child doesn’t go to the school, all are welcome. You don’t need an invitation or referral to a SN Hub, you can just call by and have a chat.

Sometimes the SN Hub may need to be cancelled at short notice, so make sure you check the website the day before you plan to go.

Unfortunately, there is no crèche facility at the SN Hubs and the groups are parent focused so not suitable for children.
