Warwickshire County Council’s Public Health department is running a consultation for the School Health and Wellbeing Service from 3 September- 12 October. People can share their views by completing a short survey here.
The School Health & Wellbeing Service is a confidential service available to all school-aged children and young people from 5-19 years old (up to 25 years old for people with special educational needs) and their families and carers. Healthcare professionals and support teams deliver preventative and universal public health programmes in schools across the county, as well as in youth centres, children’s centres, homes and other locations in the community. The team comprises Qualified School Nurses, Community Staff Nurses, Healthcare Support Workers and Administrators, who operate out of three administrative hubs in the North, East and South of the county. These teams work flexibly to best meet the needs of children, young people and their families.
The consultation provides an opportunity to share your views and experiences of the service and comment on possible future provision. The findings will be used to shape the new service which will be implemented in Autumn 2019.
