Children’s Community Nurses
The Children’s Community Nurses support families from the time a child is diagnosed and throughout their illnesses. They visit the children in their homes where they may give medications, change nasal gastric tubes and dressings, take blood samples etc. so that the child/youngster does not have to go to hospital for these interventions. They also teach and enable parents to have the confidence to care for their child. The nurses also liaise with other professionals involved in the child’s care.
