Public Health 5-19 - Parent and Carer - Support and Advice

In order to provide health support and advice for children in Cumbria, we offer an easy to access online E-School Nurse Service.

The video clinics are available for professional, parents and carers across the whole of Cumbria all day Tuesday and Thursdays.

Instead of being face to face, you will talk to the nurse over a live video link that is private and secure.

The nurse, in consultation with you will assess the child's health problems and provide you with support and advice.

For more information on the E-School Nurse video clinic please read the E-School Nurse Service user (PDF 302KB).

Please download our E-School Nurse poster (PDF 335KB) and display in your staff areas.

To book an appointment telephone: 01228 603973. 

These pages are here to offer first line information and guidance to schools for children with medical conditions; they include useful links for short and long term conditions along with pathways and example health care plans.

Better Care Together is 11 health and care organisations across Morecambe Bay implementing new ways to enable the public to lead happier and healthier lives.
