A new Text-a-Nurse service has been launched to provide young people with a secure and confidential text messaging service to a school nurse for advice and support. The service is aimed at 11 to 19 year olds and will be delivered by the School Nursing Teams.
The initiative is one of a range of resources to support the implementation of the Framework for Children and Young People’s Emotional Health and Wellbeing in Education.
Text-a –Nurse is manned by a team of school nurses between the hours of 9am -5pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays), they will respond to all messages within 24 hours Monday – Friday. Our aim is to provide a timely, and convenient access to confidential health advice for young people aged 11-19 in Northern Ireland.
