School Health & Wellbeing Service
The previous school nursing service was provided by Compass Wellbeing and was taken over by GP Care Group in September 2018. They accept referrals for children and young people attending schools in Tower Hamlets.
School nurses write Individual Health Care Plans (IHCP) for children and young people with medical conditions when medication is required in school or there is a risk that emergency interventions may be needed. For example, this may be the case if a child has eczema, asthma, allergies or any other health condition.
Your child may have already been referred by the Medical Needs Co-ordinator at Sir John Cass & Red Coat for a care plan but due to this change of provider we no longer have a named school nurse and there is currently a waiting list.
If your child is under the care of an Allergy or Asthma nurse or Paediatrician for any other medical condition you must give a copy of their care plan and any relevant clinic letters to the Medical Needs Co-ordinator so that we can support your child in school.
If you want to talk to the School Health & Wellbeing Service directly please call 0203 950 7176 or you can refer your child to them using the link below.
For further assistance please contact Mrs Anderson, Medical Needs Co-ordinator on extension 198.
