We are nurses with qualifications in children’s nursing. We have a range of experience in caring for children with disabilities in the community, school and hospital settings.
We work with children from birth to the age of 19 years.
Our aim is to support children with a disability and additional physical health needs in a variety of settings by providing training and support for their carers. A referral to our service is required for carers to be able to access the appropriate training.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer help for children with ADHD, behavioural problems or other non-physical health needs.
Occasionally students may accompany us on our visits, if you feel that this will be a problem please contact one of the team.
In order to work with the people who provide care for your child we will need a referral to our service and also you (the parent or guardian) will need to sign a Consent Form.
Please be assured that all information is treated confidentially and records which we hold will be retained as per United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust policies and comply with GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.
