Coventry School Nursing is delighted to launch two new health focused websites for young people across Coventry, one aimed at children and another for teenagers.
www.healthforkids.co.uk offers a fun way for children to learn about health with games, activities and quizzes, and also offers advice to parents.
www.healthforteens.co.uk hosts videos as well as articles to educate teenagers on a range of health topics such as contraception, mental health, drugs and alcohol.
Students will still be able to see their NHS school nurse face-to-face in clinic and can also access support through ChatHealth, a School Nurse texting service for 11-18 year olds across Coventry. The service enables students to send confidential SMS text messages to School Nurses who will provide impartial advice and support. The number to text is 07507 331949.
In addition, we also provide an advice line so parents can contact a school nurse to discuss any child health concerns they may have. The service is known as Parent Line and can be reached by calling 01926 626 590 between 5pm and 8pm Monday to Friday.
