Budding young artists from Rotherham’s secondary schools are being asked to shape the identity of a new 0-19 integrated public health nursing service.
The new service, which will be run by The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, is being launched on 1 April 2017. It will provide young people and families in Rotherham with streamlined access to care. Previously separate services such as school nursing, health visiting and oral health will now be delivered by the new 0-19 service.
To mark the launch of the service, a competition is being held. The Trust is inviting young people to use their creativity by creating a bright and eye-catching logo design.
There are a number of great prizes up for grabs including Rotherham United match tickets, a graphic design experience day and tickets for next year’s X Factor tour at Sheffield Arena.
Tracy Armstrong, Deputy Head of Nursing – Children’s Services said: “Our new service will be a great benefit to children, families and young people of Rotherham. Services such as health visiting, school nursing and health promotion have been brought together to provide a seamless public health nursing service as opposed to multiple specialists, meaning people will now only need to see one public health nurse.
“The competition is a great way for young people to get involved with the service and find out what we will be providing. As a service for children, families and young people, we thought it only right that they have the opportunity to influence the identity of the service. The winner will not only get some fantastic prizes, they will also see their design used across all the service’s communications including leaflets, online and on social media.”
The competition is being run until 20 January 2017 with both hand-drawn and computer generated images being accepted. To find out more information visit www.therotherhamft.nhs.uk/0-19/ or speak to secondary school tutors.
