Children’s Community Nursing Service (Richmond)

We are a team of registered children’s nurses who work with parents and carers of children with acute, chronic, complex health or palliative care needs. The service encompasses Children’s Continuing Care, Children’s Community Nursing and continence care.

The team will manage Children with a nursing need such as intravenous antibiotics, central line management, post-operative care, wound checks, home oxygen or vital signs monitoring e.g. blood pressure.

The service will also assess children in line with the national framework for children and young people’s continuing care (2016) and if eligible short break care (respite care) provided as appropriate.

From the age of three children with a need for continence assessment and pad provision will also be managed by this service.

We aim to provide nursing care, support and education needed to enable parents and carers to manage their child’s condition at home. Where possible, we also work to enable early discharge from hospital and avoid hospital readmissions.
