Wellington Children's Hospital
Paediatric Community Nurses
The Paediatric Community Team comprises experienced paediatric nurses, providing generalist and specialist nursing services to children, young people and their families in the home and community. The team is based in Child Health Services in Kenepuru and Wellington, providing a link between the hospital, community services and home.
Our aim is to assist and support families to optimise the health and wellbeing of their child and family.
One area of our work that is increasingly visible is the care of the child with eczema. To improve access and choice for families, an eczema clinic is now available on Saturday mornings. This has proven to be successful and in demand.
