STAFFING UPDATE

Welcome to our new Health Care Assistant Aja Kebbeh who will be working across the special schools.

We will soon be welcoming our new continence advisor Jodie Gibson to the team.

We say a sad farewell to Julia Willshire, Special Schools Nurse, as she leaves our service to pursue a course in Specialist Community Public Health Nursing. We wish her all the best for her new role.

Nursing continues to provide many services including: Phlebotomy, continence advice, annual nursing reviews, weights and heights, support for parents/carers and pupils, health assessments, health promotion, devising and updating care plans and hospital passports, safeguarding, collaborate working with education, allied health professionals, and parents/carers.

The Special School Nursing Team support with sharing hospital passports for 14yrs to 18yrs as to ensure that hospital visits and any transition to hospital is effective.

To continue to maintain nursing standards, we are making good use of our new purpose-built training simulation suite at our Goldie Leigh base, to ensure the highest training standards are achieved and maintained for all our staff and parents alike.
