The role of a learning disability nurse is to ensure the complex health needs of children and young adults are being addressed and catered for.

This is why our nursing team consists of Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants who work in partnership with parents and carers, education staff, residential staff, and other members of our multidisciplinary team both internally and externally to provide a comprehensive, holistic care plan for all of our children and young adults alongside specialist services.
