Islington Children's Community Nursing Service
Community children's nurses (CCN) are registered children's nurses who provide clinical nursing to the child at home or in school; assisting parents to provide treatment and monitor the child’s progress. They are a source of support, information and advice for families. They may act as lead professional for children with long term conditions and/or complex needs; requesting and co-ordinating care from local paediatricians or GPs, the multidisciplinary team and at times directly from the tertiary specialists.
Eczema, Asthma and Allergy nurse-led clinics are run as part of this service in the community. There are also neonatal nurses working in conjunction with UCH and Whittington hospitals work within the team. They provide both clinical nursing, advice and support for babies and their parents/carers. Respite and nursing care is provided to families of children with additional health needs such as complex or life limiting conditions that are resident in the boroughs of Camden, Islington and Haringey.
Training is also provided in the early years setting or voluntary sector.
