Currently, the School Nursing Team will not be offering any further advice clinics for parents and carers in schools following a review of their service.
Parents are able to self-refer to ‘Healthy Together’ via the School Nursing office number, 0116 215 6795 or referrals can be made through school via a new electronic referral system.

The School Nursing Service also offers a text messaging service where parents and carers of children aged 0-19 years can get confidential advice and support with behaviour, parenting, child development, emotional health and wellbeing (self-harm) and bullying), minor accidents and illnesses and general health queries.

Texts will not be seen outside working hours but you should recieve a reply (a 'bounce-back') to confirm receipt of a text sent within one working day. For urgent medical attention please contact your GP or call 111 or 999.
