Schools nurses play a key role in improving health outcomes for children but face considerable challenges. Budget cuts & growing demands mean school nurses must continue to innovate, integrate and promote their services whilst keeping young people at the heart of everything they do.

Attend this Westminster Briefing event to explore the national picture for school nursing, how you can meet ever-growing demands and gain practical guidance from innovative & effective services.

Key issues to be addressed:

  • The national landscape for school nursing: future opportunities & challenges
  • Achieving more with less: providing excellent care at a time of financial constraint
  • Safeguarding & your workload: effectively meeting your duties
  • Identifying gaps in your service and innovating to overcome these
  • Commissioning a joined-up approach from early years to adult services
  • Examples of successful school nursing provision from across the country
  • Supporting your school nursing workforce to overcome the challenges ahead

About the event:

The morning session will focus on the current national policy landscape and what this means for school nurses and commissioners.

The afternoon session will explore current good practice in school nursing service design & delivery. The session will be highly interactive, and provide you with practical guidance to take back and implement in your organisation.
