We are a friendly dedicated team of nurses who provide a caring, consistent and quality service to young people across Sandwell. Our aim is to ensure that children and young people (aged 5-19) are well supported within their school and their community and that they are able to access extra help and care should they need it. There is a dedicated team of nurses for each of the six towns in Sandwell.
All secondary schools have a named School Health Nurse (SHN), although schools can contact any team member for advice or support. The service has a duty nurse available five days a week to answer general enquiries. School Nurses can offer advice in person at Here for You sessions held weekly in each secondary school and community school. Parents of children in primary school can access Here for You sessions in school for advice. Times for sessions are listed for individual schools.
