Who is the School Nurse?
The ‘Drop-In’ school nurse is Charlotte Munroe who works for the NHS in the community within a team and is based at Salisbury Hospital. She is able to see any student at school on their own or if a student wishes, she may attend with a parent or a friend. All consultations with the school nurse will be confidential unless Charlotte feels that you or anyone else is at risk; she will then refer to another adult after discussion with you.
