Every High School has a named Nurse and every school has a drop in so that young people can to the nurse in confidence about anything that is troubling them e.g. exam stress, anxiety or any health concern.
You can also come and see us in the Youth Café (Buttermarket Street) every Thursday 3-6pm.
Confidentiality and consent:
We encourage young people to talk to their parents/carers about health issues that are troubling them.
Although School Nurses offer a confidential service to young people, there are times when the School Nurse may need to share information and this will be explained to you to keep you safe.
