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.
We are a team of Specialist nurses with a keen interest in the health of looked after children and care leavers.
Our role is to ensure that the health needs of looked after children are met. We do this by assessing the children and young people at the Review Health Assessment. We will then refer to other specialist services as needed, deliver co-ordinated packages of care, ensure that statutory and corporate parenting responsibilities are met. The aim of the service is to provide a holistic wraparound service to support the needs of this population. We are placed within the MCH Safeguarding Team, and the administrators are placed at Snapdragons Centre.
