The Community Children’s Nursing Service supports children with a wide range o complex health conditions who require expert and specific nursing advance and support

How can we help?

We are a skilled team of specialist community children’s nurses and we provide a wide range of nursing and extended nursing roles. We facilitate the promotion of health needs and the delivery of medical care and treatments for children with complex health needs.

By working with children and young people within their usual environment, we are able to reduce the number of hospital stays/visits. This helps towards ensuring that the child or young person has access to the same care opportunities as those without additional needs.

For children and young people with complex health needs who require hospital admission, liaison with the community nursing team will ensure that the child or young person is admitted for as short a period of time as possible.

The Children’s Community Nursing Service are active members of the palliative care pathway for children and young people. We facilitate the provision of appropriate nursing care to meet the complex healthcare needs of children and young people on this pathway.
