Download the children's community nurses referral form (DOCX, 63 KB) Referrals can be accepted from any professional involved with the child or young person.
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, for example they are tube fed or have a tracheostomy.
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.
The clinical psychology service is for children and young people with life limiting or life threatening disorders and complex physical presentation and their families, with need for psychological input due to the issues arising from their condition and who receive a service from the children’s community nurses.
Referrals can be made by members of the children’s community nursing team, neonatal nurses and paediatricians, and can arise from direct consultation with the clinical psychologist.
