The Camden School Nursing Service provides specialist nursing care, advice and support to school-age children, young people and their families.

The service supports children and young people aged 4 to 18 attending mainstream and special schools in Camden.

The service is delivered in schools so an appointment is not necessary.

Generally, children are transferred to the School Nursing Service from the Health Visiting Service once they reach five years old, or schools highlight healthcare needs to their named school nurse so a referral is not necessary.
