Better Care

BCHC Plus School Nursing 

The BCHC Plus School Nursing service supplements the NHS ‘core’ school nurse service provided by local health commissioners. 

BCHC Plus offers schools and other settings the opportunity to buy additional dedicated school nurse time to address school health needs that lie beyond the scope of the core service.


The link between educational attainment and positive health is well-documented. School nurses play a key role in ensuring that children, young people and families have effective support and access to available services at the earliest point, from a child’s transition into school and continuing through their school-aged years. 

Local authorities commission a ‘core’ school nursing service supporting the public health needs of school age children. But sometimes schools find that specific health needs in their school require additional support over and above that available from the core service. 

BCHC’s trusted NHS school nurses have many years experience of successfully providing locally commissioned school nursing services.

Through the BCHC Plus programme head teachers can purchase additional school nurse time from a team dedicated to this programme, provided to the same high clinical standards, and focusing on their school’s specific needs and outcomes. 

A BCHC Plus school nurse will provide regular, scheduled visits and protected time dedicated to your school. As a trusted clinical member of your school’s virtual team the nurse will address agreed specific health needs, always working in conjunction with, and complementing, the core service. 

To improve the effectiveness of the service for our customers and minimise duplication, BCHC Plus nurses work alongside and liaise regularly with their core service colleagues.
