As your child begins his/her journey through education they and you will be able to access the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust School Nursing (SN) Service.

In our public health role we provide a range of services to support children and young people to have the best possible health and education outcomes. As an introduction to our service parents of school entry children are encouraged to complete a confidential health assessment regarding their child .

It is in an online format and the password is available from school and/or SN service.  Following completion we can follow up any queries or concern raised by parents which can help the child’s health, wellbeing and ability to learn and develop.

We understand the joys and worries of parenthood and the challenges that can affect children and young people. We have vast experience, knowledge and skills to deliver evidence based practice and in partnership with you maximise your child’s potential via health promotion and appropriate intervention.
