The Children in Care Nursing Service 

All children and young people in care living within the Bradford Metropolitan District Council (BMDC) aged 0 to 18 years of age have access to the Children in Care Nursing Service.  

We are a team of specialist nurses, nursery nurses and administrative staff located at Westbourne Green Health Centre, Bradford.  Each looked after child and young person has their own named nurse who remains with them during their journey through the care system. 

What we do:

The specialist nurses ensure that the children and young people in care with in Bradford are offered an individualised, age-appropriate six monthly or annual health assessment as per statutory guidance which supports and promotes the health and wellbeing of this cohort. We also offer these assessments at a time and venue convenient to the child and young person. 

Our nursery nurses can support with a range of identified health issues including child development, behaviour management, continence, and sleep. 

We liaise with a wide range of other services and professionals both within health and other agencies.

Bradford Youth Justice Nurses work within Bradford YOT and provide health assessments, support, advice and sign-posting to all young people aged 10 – 18 and under (and their carers)  who are involved with the juvenile criminal justice service throughout the Bradford District.
