School Nursing The School Nursing Team provides a range of health and wellbeing support to our Children & Young People in schools across Gloucestershire. What they do: 
They are registered nurses who work with children, young people and their families to help them improve their emotional health and wellbeing as well as support and advice about physical health issues they may experience.  They can meet face to face in school, at home or at any community setting that suits the young person.  Alternatively they can meet virtually on a video call or even text a young person to chat about their worries.
