Text-a-Nurse is a confidential text messaging service for young people aged 11-19. It’s safe and easy to use, you don’t have to give your name, so it’s completely confidential. 

Text-a-Nurse service has been launched to provide young people with a secure and confidential text messaging service to a school nurse for advice and support.

The service is aimed at 11 to 19 year olds and will be delivered by the School Nursing Teams.  It is one of a range of resources to support the implementation of the Framework for Children and Young People’s Emotional Health and Wellbeing in Education.

This new scheme will allow young people to seek advice about sensitive health issues without a face to face appointment. School nurses will provide help on a range of issues including, emotional health and wellbeing, alcohol and drugs, sexual health, bullying and general health issues.
