Oxfordshire School Health Nurses
Our nurses provide physical and emotional healthcare for children and young people in Oxfordshire. They are qualified nurses with further specialised training in the health needs of children and young people.
They work as part of a team consisting of specialist community public health nurses, community staff nurses, and clinical and administrative assistants.
School Health Nurses implement the Healthy Child Programme: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/healthy-child-programme-5-to-19-years-old
