School Nurse Update.

During Covid-19 I will continue to be contactable on 01454 862441 or by email on melanie.coombs@nhs.net 

When pupils go back to school (whenever this may be) there will be a gradual return to normal practice. However until that time there will be a temporary suspension of all face to face activities from health professionals.

Hello, my name is Mel Coombs and I am your School Health Nurse. I am usually based in Patchway Locality Hub and no longer solely based in school. (see above)

All my contact details and recent changes to the service can be found on the school website under the Our Learning tab then Interventions and Therapies then School Nurse where you can also find useful information about toilet training, constipation and soiling, sleep issues and School Clinics. You may also be interested to see the new CCHP website which has a huge amount of resources, advice and support: https://cchp.nhs.uk/cchp/explore-cchp/school-health-nursing/school-nursing-information-resources The quickest way to contact me is via email: melanie.coombs@nhs.net but you can write to me at Patchway Hub, send a letter into school with your child marked for my attention, or telephone me at Patchway Hub on 01454 862442. I am also usually available for Parents’ Evenings starting at Primary School at 3.30pm and at Secondary School from 5pm.

The School Nursing Service runs a confidential Drop-In clinic on Fridays, generally from 1000 until 1400 and I am usually around in the Physio Room from 0830 if parents would like to contact me for advice by phone on 01454 862888.

If you would like to be referred to the School Health Nursing Team, please ask School Reception for a School Nurse request for support form. Please ask your child’s teacher if you require any help with a referral.
