More school nurses needed says Unite3rd April 2009
Health unions have called on the government to ensure that all primary care trusts commit funds to each train 10 new school nurses from September.
The call from Unite/CPHVA is part of a request for a school nurse recruitment campaign after figures emerged that there are estimated to be 6,900 children to every specialist school nurse in England. There is also an increasing workload on school nurses with the cervical cancer immunisation programme and the government’s push to have a specialist school nurse for every secondary school and its cluster of primary schools by 2010.
