School Nursing

Livewell Southwest wants children and young people in our community to get the best start in life. Our school nursing team works with children, their parents and professionals to ensure young people’s health needs are met and supported – at home, at school and in the wider community.

Our experienced registered nurses and health workers offer confidential advice and support on a range of physical and emotional health issues, including:

  • Bedwetting and constipation
  • Managing challenging behaviours
  • Bullying
  • Drug and alcohol use
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Growth
  • Healthy diet and lifestyle
  • Hearing concerns
  • Online safety
  • Safely managing and treating school children with long-term health conditions, such as allergies and epilepsy
  • Sexual health
  • Smoking

If you are worried about any aspect of your child’s development, please get in touch. We accept referrals from parents, carers, professionals and the young person concerned.

Professionals: Please note that it is important that all referrals are discussed with the child, young person, parent or carer in advance to gain consent to make the referral. Please ensure that the referral form is signed by the parent/carer or young person before submitting to this service.
