Nurses to be based with social workers and teachers

  • Comment

Primary care nurses are going to be based at a south-coast school as part of a pioneering community scheme to combine services.

Brighton and Hove City Council has been awarded £5.3m to transform a primary school in a deprived area into a ‘community hub’.

Staff, including school nurses, health visitors and social workers, will be ‘co-located’ at the Whitehawk Primary School site.

The council will be the first local authority in the country to provide health, education and social care at one location, allowing local people to access health, adult education, cultural and social care facilities [ok?] in one visit. Services are due to start being delivered from September 2011.

The money for the initiative comes from a £200m government fund set up in December 2008 to support the improvement of services for children.
