Our Specialist Nurses and Medical Team Provide Round the Clock Support

Nurse School 2

The specialist nursing and medical team provides assessment, treatment, diagnosis, emergency care and training across the 24 hour provision. We also have close links between School, Adult Services and College. The nursing team includes epilepsy specialist nurses who work closely with consultants and specialist GPs.

The local GPs hold clinics on site each week and these enable epilepsy medication to be monitored and other illnesses to be treated promptly.

The nursing agency provides nursing care in the homes of all school pupils as well as having the option to access separate nursing beds. The nurses are accessible via emergency radios at any time and support in the cases where there is a medical emergency. They also support staff to ensure that care in the classroom and the residential setting is appropriate to meet all medical needs

The nurses are involved in the mandatory annual training of staff on epilepsy and the administration of medication.

The school has close links with Great Ormond street whose consultants visit on a regular basis and provide access to expert specialist care and diagnosis.

“The medical care provided is outstanding. The commitment of staff to ensure appropriate health and safety of the young people supports the high emphasis the school places on promoting young people’s health”
