Wales secondary schools get more nurses

23rd September 2008

The Welsh Assembly Government wants more nurses to be recruited into Welsh secondary schools to help reduce obesity rates and help pupils with drug and alcohol problems.

They want to see one nurse per school in place by 2011. Health Minister Edwina Hart said: "Our goal is to ensure that the health service provided to school-age children and young people is sustainable, adaptable to change, responsive and effective, ensuring continued development and improvement."
