The Looked After Children’s Nurses work in the whole of Kent and carry out your review health assessments. Their job is to work with other workers and organisations that could be involved in your health and wellbeing (like social workers or physiotherapists) to make sure that you are supported.
Every nurse wants to work with you to help you reach your full potential. This means that as well as your review health assessments, they may be able to find services to meet your individual health needs. If there are things of a more private nature that you want to discuss, then you can speak with them by yourself. As your safety is the most important thing, there may be times when they need to tell your social worker something you have told them, but they will let you know if this happens.
When your LAC nurse sees you for your review health assessment, you should be given details to contact the service or that nurse. If any questions ever come up, make them feel useful, get in touch! They may even be able to meet you somewhere outside of your home to talk about what you need.
If you do not have the contact details for your nurse, contact their office on 0300 1234 461 Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and someone will be able to speak to you.
