The AB School Nursing Service have teamed up with Chat Health NHS to offer a new text service for young people aged 11-19. Young people can anonymously text our School Nursing Team on 07312 263 262 for confidential support and advice on a range of physical and/or emotional health issues.

We do not inform your parents, teachers or anyone else if a young person contacts the school nurse. However, if we were concerned about their safety, we may have to inform someone. We would always try to speak to the young person first before doing so. We aim to reply to you within one working day and you should get an immediate bounce-back to confirm we received your text. Texts will not be seen outside of normal working hours. If you need help in the meantime, visit GP out of hours by calling NHS 111. If it is an emergency, dial 999 or visit A&E.
