Children's Community Nursing Team - Poole Hospital NHS logo

The children's community nursing team provides support and expert nursing care for children at home.

This could follow discharge from hospital, or for those with long term life-threatening, life-limiting or terminal illness. 

The team's mission is to work within a multi-disciplinary environment to deliver excellent and individualised child and family centred care.

It aims to allow the child/ infant to achieve optimum potential for health and development within their family environment, by minimising hospital admission and facilitating early discharge, if admitted, working in partnership with families. Referrals can be made to the CCN team by any health professional in the team around the child.
