We provide nursing services for children and young people with acute and complex health nursing needs across Berkshire.
This is made up of Specialist School Nursing and Respite care for children with a nursing need and learning difficulty in Berkshire East. There are some differences in the services offered in the east and west of the county.
The Children's Community Nursing services in Berkshire West transferred to us on 1 October 2019. The new base is at the University of Reading, London Road, RG1 5EY. This is an exciting opportunity for the Children's Community Nursing team to work in very close collaboration with the specialist school nursing team, which will ensure that good quality nursing care is delivered in the most efficient way to children and young people across a variety of community settings.
