Children’s Community Nursing Team - Bury Community

Who are we? 

The Children’s Community Nursing Team consists of Registered Children‘s Nurses with hospital and community experience. The team structure comprises of a Team Lead, a Specialist Diabetes Nurse, a Complex Needs Nurse, Senior Nurses, Staff Nurses, Health Care Support Worker and an Administrator. 

We work with parents/carers within the Bury area to provide nursing care, support and health education for Children and Young People aged 0 to 18 years (19 years if complex, in full time education or under a paediatric consultant) 

Our aim 

We aim to ensure the child or young person can receive nursing care and treatment in the community setting for both acute and chronic conditions which can be delivered either at home or in one of our children’s clinics dependent on their needs.

The Children’s Community Nursing Team can provide support and education witha range of treatments and include the following examples: 

  • Intravenous Medicines/Injections 

  • Wound care 

  • Post-operative care 

  • Nasogastric tubes (NGT) and gastrostomies 

  • Complex needs 

  • Management of respiratory conditions 

  • Management of eczema 

  • Management of constipation 

  • Management of Diabetes 

  • Support with Epilepsy Management 

  • End-of-Life and Palliative care 

  • Oncology 

As a service dedicated to the health and well-being of children and young people you can expect a service which is flexible, family centred and focused on care, support and education through facilitating care in clinics, home visits or virtually. 

Referrals to our service are accepted by phone, fax, e-mail and letters from all community and hospital health professionals (GP, consultant, Health Visitor, School Nurse, Specialist Nurses etc). Although families cannot directly refer to ours services, please contact us if you are unsure or have any questions and we can help signpost correctly for referrals relating to health care.
