Public Health School Nursing Experience
Do you live in Gloucestershire and have a child aged 0-19 years
or do you work with children and young people?
If so please complete this short survey telling us about your experiences of accessing, receiving support and working with the Public Health Nursing Service here in Gloucestershire. Public Health Nursing is a term for all Health Visiting, Community Nursery Nursing and School Nursing staff that work directly with families and children in a range of different ways. They also refer or help families access other services or support they might need.
The Health Visiting workforce support pregnant women and fathers and families with preschool children by providing expert advice and guidance on parenting and health and wellbeing. They also provide all families with health and development reviews throughout the preschool years.
Health Visiting helps with breastfeeding, sleep, mother and baby mental health including postnatal depression, weaning, behaviour, pre-school choices and funding and any other specific issues you need help with.
The School Nursing workforce have the knowledge and skills to support families with school aged children and young people up to 19 years. They monitor children and young people’s health and provide support and guidance to children and young people, helping them to be in the best health in order to benefit from their education and reach their full potential. School Nursing helps with bedwetting, healthy weight, mental health and emotional wellbeing, internet safety, healthy relationships, sexual health and contraception in secondary schools and any other specific issues you need help with.
The service is provided by Gloucestershire Health and Care (GHC) and commissioned by Gloucestershire County Council. Together we want to use your feedback to help us understand how to improve the experiences of children, young people and their families and professionals of the Public Health Nursing Service.
