Children's Nurse

Hello everyone

I am the Children’s Nurse for school; my role is in addition to the more traditional School Nursing Service and I do not take their place.  My main function is to act as a point of contact between Education and Health; to liaise with other services; to sign-post appropriately;  to support and advise on health related issues.  I am also available to liaise, support and give advice to you as parents.   I work across the Special Schools in Gateshead and my main base is Low Fell Clinic; messages can be left there for me at any time or you can contact me via school. I will do my best to be available in Gibside School every Monday and Wednesday to be available to parents and carers, to answer queries and sign-post to other services as required. I have met some parents at the recent parents’ evenings, school assemblies’  and school drop in sessions; I hope to meet everyone in due course.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if required.

Kind Regards

Jenn
