You may have already been in touch with the School Nursing Service regarding your New Parent Talks and asking if we are available to attend or send information to share with your parents. As you will be aware, the NHS across England has had to change the way that healthcare is delivered so that services can concentrate on treating and caring for patients who are in most need during the Covid – 19 incident. As a result of this situation we are unable to attend talks, but we are now delighted to be able to send you the link below to a YouTube clip that can be shown to your reception parents explaining our role and how we can be contacted. .

The Link will also be available on the School Nursing pages of both the HCT and the Family Centre Service Websites.
