The Targeted Youth Health Service provides a mobile nursing service by a Registered Nurse who is skilled in youth health and development for students aged 12-20 years and enrolled in Alternative Education and/or Youth Transition services. Comprehensive youth health assessments are offered with follow up care provided in collaboration with the young person.
The objectives are to:
- Improve access to primary health care of young people with high needs
- Improve youth health and reduce inequalities
- Promote overall improvement in the provision of services to young people in the district, through developing workforce and best practice approaches.
Referrals are taken from Alternative Education and Youth Transition services. This is a free service.
