Children Looked after Nurses
We are Doug and Kathryn:
While in care, the local authority must look after your general health care. The stuff they do includes:
Making sure you are registered with a doctor and a dentist.
Making sure you have a health assessment each year
If you are under five, you will see a doctor twice a year for a health assessment.
Making sure your health care needs are part of your care plan and that health is part of your Review discussions.
For more information you can view the NHS Children Looked After Nurses leaflet.
