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

There is a team of school health nurses who provide a service all year round. If you want to contact a school health nurse please email SHN.oxfordshire@oxfordhealth.nhs.uk .

Or if you are a parent/carer of child aged between 5-11 years who attends a state school or is home educated, please text our new  messaging service Chat Health using our Parentline 07312 263227.
