Facilities Information

Main Services Provided

The Trust has a team of registered childrens nurses in five localities who provide a service to children who are acutely or chronically ill or who have complex health needs. The teams:

Provide direct nursing care to children at home thus minimising hospitalisation where appropriate
Provide child specific advice within educational or residential facilities
Teach parents, teachers and other carers to provide care and treatment to specific children through a comprehensive competency framework
Monitor a childs progress and liaise with medical and other allied health professionals as necessary
The nursing staff are supported by a team of support carers who may care for a named child/children either in the home or school environment. The support carers are trained by the nursing staff within the CCN team.

The CCN teams work closely with the Education and Library Board to ascertain the health needs of children in special and mainstream schools. Where applicable, the team provides training and information to teachers and classroom assistants for children with specific health needs.
