More clinics for children’s health advice
Date published: 13 December 2011
The Children’s Community Nursing Team in Bury has increased the number of clinics it operates to provide support to families six days a week.
Specialist nurses provide treatment, advice and support at the sessions to help families manage conditions such as asthma, eczema and constipation. Parents can book an appointment at a time that suits them at their nearest clinic and will have access to a nurse who can deal with their child’s condition.
Sonia Petch, Children’s Community Matron for Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We’ve increased the number of clinics we provide and have timed them so that parents can bring children after school, for greater flexibility. This time of year, chronic conditions such as asthma and eczema can become worse but don’t need intensive treatment, so the clinics are a good way for patients to get the help they need, in the quickest time.”
Sessions take place each week at the following locations:
- Monday, 3:30pm to 5:30pm, Sunnybank Clinic, Bury
- Tuesday, 3:30pm to 6:30pm, Prestwich Walk in Centre
- Wednesday, 3:30pm to 5:30pm, Sunnybank Clinic, Bury
- Thursday, 1pm to 6pm, Moorgate Primary Care Centre, Bury
- Friday, 3:30pm to 5:30pm, Sunnybank Clinic, Bury
- Saturday, 9:30am to 11:30am, Sunnybank Clinic, Bury
The Children’s Community Nursing Team is a team of registered nurses providing children, young people, parents and carers with advice, education, counselling and nursing care within the home environment. They can provide treatment for a range of conditions including asthma, eczema, wound care and diabetes, as well as more specialist care.
