Improving the health and wellbeing of looked after children and young people is paramount and is a statutory duty. In the looked after children's nursing teams we undertake annual or bi-annual health review of all children in foster care.
We work closely with our children, young people and fellow health professionals to: ensure a child’s health and wellbeing, to act as health advocates and to enable their voices to be heard in all decisions about their health.
Who can refer?
When a child comes into care, there is a statutory obligation for them to have an initial health assessment, usually undertaken by a paediatrician. Subsequently, social workers refer our looked after children to us for their review health assessments.
Social workers, carers and other key stakeholders contact us throughour the year, for advice/support on a case-by-case basis.
All looked after children.
