Who do we see and what do we do?
Children and young people are seen by the Community Children’s Nursing Team if they are registered with a Rotherham General Practitioner (GP).
The Rapid Response Team will see children and young people who have recently been or are still acutely unwell who no longer need to be in hospital but require further support to ensure they are safely cared for in the community.
The Complex Care Nursing Team provides respite care in the community for children/young people with complex health needs and their families. This care is provided by the Health Care Support Workers supervised by qualified nursing staff. If you would like to find out if your child is eligible for this service, more information is available on Rotherham’s ‘Local Offer’ website http://www.rotherhamsendlocaloffer.org/
The Special School Nurses aim to make sure that children and young people with health needs can get the most out of life and their time in school. They will provide help to plan care, assess and review children’s needs, provide information for education staff and work with parents.
Children and young people who have epilepsy, diabetes or asthma may be seen by the Specialist Nurses.
