CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

To access the most up-to-date information on the Coronavirus, please click the link below:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public

This site is updated daily.  Please be aware the online booking system and the 24 hour booking service to enable patients to book their own appointments has temporarily been removed. This is to minimise any risk to patients and staff in coming into contact with coronavirus.  We apologise for the inconvenience but hope all our patients will understand the rationale behind it.  Both these facilities will of course be returned to normal as soon as it is felt safe to do so.  Please bear with our reception staff who will now be asking our patients when they call if they have travelled to China, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Japan or other South Asian countries in the past 2 weeks or within 2 weeks of getting unwell.  This is to minimise any further risk of spreading.  Thank you very much for your understanding.

BEDWELL BUILDING WORKS

Our Bedwell Site is currently undergoing some building works to update the surgery, these started on 03.12.19 and are anticipated to be completed by the end of MARCH 2020. During this period there will be a certain amount of unavoidable disruption but we are doing our best to limit this so please bear with us.

Hertfordshire Community Trust - School Nursing

Hertfordshire Community Trust's School Nursing Service is part of the Hertfordshire Family Centre Service. The Service brings children’s centres, health visiting and school nursing together to provide a more joined up service for children, young people and their families from pregnancy through to when a child reaches 19. There is a range of different support groups, activities and services on offer for children and their families to help them be healthy, grow and develop. Families can access available services from any Hertfordshire Family Centre, allowing them to fit sessions and services around busy family lives. For more information, visit the Family Centre Service website.

The School Nursing Service works together with children and young people their parents/carers and school staff, to provide a comprehensive efficient and accessible service which:

      • Helps children keep healthy during their school days and for the rest of their lives

      • Prevents ill health in children and the local community
      • Supports children with medical needs and those needing medication
      • Ensures that educational potential is not hampered by unmet health needs
      • Monitors and supports families in relation to Hertfordshire Safeguarding Policies

When your child commences school at the age of five, care is transferred from the Health Visiting Service to the School Nursing Service. The service has four distinct areas that it offers to children attending a Hertfordshire mainstream school. Please be aware that this service is not commissioned for children attending private schools.

School aged immunisations are offered to all Hertfordshire children including those who are home educated.

Online referrals:

Parents, teachers, GPs and other healthcare staff can now refer a child to the school nursing service via an online form. Make a referral now.
