The Frome school nurse team consists of two school nurses and one school nursing assistant. They cover over 23 schools in Frome and the surrounding area including first schools, middle schools, senior school, SEN specialist schools and an independent school.
They help promote and support children aged 5-19 to live safe and healthy lives; and to liaise with multi-professional agencies to achieve this.
Chat Health is a new initiative which was launched in June 2020. This is a nationally recognised, secure and confidential text messaging for young people. It allows them to access health care professionals easily and anonymously for advice and support.
The service is also available for parents on a separate line.
Chat Health is managed by the School Nurses team.
