Consultation launched on plans to change school nursing across the Stockton area
11:57am Friday 30th August 2013 in News
PARENTS across Stockton are being invited to give feedback on school nursing in preparation for a redesign of the service.
To help reshape the service, as part of the Healthy Child Programme, parents are being encouraged to complete an online survey to share their opinions and to help influence future developments within the service, currently provided by North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust.
Councillor Jim Beall, chairman of Stockton’s health and wellbeing board, said: “School nursing is a key part of the Healthy Child Programme so this is a great opportunity for families to tell us what they think about the current nurse services.
"We want to take their comments on board to develop the service and continue to meet the needs of children in Stockton.”
During a 12-week consultation period, starting September 2, parents will be able to give feedback on their children’s current services including emotional health support, healthy eating and access to specialist support.
The school nurse service within schools is responsible for providing health services for children, young people and families and focuses upon keeping them safe and healthy from a young age.
