Medway Community Healthcare (MCH) provides a wide range of high quality community health services for Medway residents; from health visitors and district nurses to speech and language therapists and out of hours urgent care.
The Learning Disabilities nurses provide support to children and families who have a developmental delay or a learning disability, specialising in behaviour, sleep & continence. They would normally already be under one of our other children’s services. They also provide support to Dane Court, Bradfields & Rivermead schools.
All nurses provide continence advice and support to children over 4 years with continence problems, if they have had an initial continence assessment by their Health Visitor or School Nurse, unless the child has an underlying medical condition which requires specialist continence support.
We can also provide information to the wider community and children’s workforce on how to recognise & support children & young people with asthma.
