School Nursing Team

School nurses work with school-age children and young people up to the twentieth birthday, with the aim of ensuring they experience the very best health and wellbeing and can reach their full potential.   

School nurses work within a skill mix team and are based in a variety of community settings. They work in Integrated Locality Health Visiting and School Nursing teams. School nurses also work with the wider multi professional team across the Borough of Rochdale. 

They provide a wide range of care, advice and support including screening, immunisations, health assessments, health promotion activities, health advice and signposting, specialist support and much more.
