A team of specialist nurses who are committed to improving the health outcomes for children and young people who are looked after. This specialist, county-wide team strive to deliver a supportive, informative and highly effective service to address and meet the health needs of children and young people who are looked after
We achieve this by:
Foster families, Social Workers and other professionals can access the services of the Looked After Children Nurse Specialist Team via the following routes:
No referral is necessary. The Team are notified of all children placed in care within West Sussex. This begins the process of health needs evaluation.
The Looked After Children Specialist Nursing Team is not an emergency service and does not have an 'out of hours' service.
