Text your school nurse
You can text a school nurse at Connect for Health from your mobile phone. ChatHealth, the school nurse messaging service, is confidential and available Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. You can message for advice on all kinds of health issues, like sexual health, emotional health, bullying, healthy eating and any general health concerns. Look out for more information around school. You can still get in touch with the school nurse in the same way as you might have done before, if you prefer.
