Children’s Community Nurses and Diana Psychologist

Children’s community nursing service

Community children’s nurses will support your child at home or another setting in the local community. The team will administer intravenous medication, provide nursing support to children who are dependent on ‘technology’ e.g. are tube fed or have a tracheostomy and They also provide support for children with complex and life limiting conditions and end of life care in collaboration with other community facing services. Their aim is to prevent or reduce the amount of time your child needs to spend in hospital. To help you and your child, they will provide information, resources and support to help your child be as independent as possible. They will work with you and the other health staff and organisations who support your child’s health and wellbeing.

Referrals can be accepted from any professional involved with the child or young person.
