In Hillingdon, the service includes asthma nurse specialists, who are part of the Hillingdon Children’s Asthma Group and provide specialist advice to schools to ensure that children with asthma receive maximum support.

The team also runs an enuresis (bedwetting) service in community clinics. The school nursing team works closely with the Immunisation Specialist Lead Nurse and will follow up children who are three months or more behind in their immunisation schedule either at home or in community clinics in Hillingdon.

Eligibility criteria (who is the service for?)

The core service is offered to all children aged five to 19 living in the London Borough of Hillingdon and attending a Hillingdon school.

The asthma nursing service is offered to all schools within the London Borough of Hillingdon. This includes all state primary and secondary schools, special schools and independent schools.

The service does not provide home visits to children attending Hillingdon schools who live outside the borough.

How can someone be referred?

Generally, children are transferred to the School Nursing Service from the Health Visiting Service once they reach five years old, so a referral is not necessary.

Referrals can be made in person or by telephone, fax or letter from the client, carer, school, or social services)

Enuresis referrals are  accepted from general practitioners (GPs) or hospital consultants only. The enuresis clinic offers scheduled appointments.

Referral from neonatal BCG  is made by parents or carers, who should make an appointment directly to the host clinic.

Service times

The service operates from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, term-time only.

There is a limited service during school holidays for BCG and enuresis clinics.
