"Thank you to my School Nurse Bev"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC / School nursing Kirklees

(as a parent/guardian),

I have 2 sons and both of them needs support in different ways.

One of my sons broke his foot and he would not use the stairs outside our flat. Bev was doing a home visit as planned and she spoke with my son and explained how much he was missing.

She took him out and showed him how to use the stairs he was very unsure but with the reassurance and support that she gave him, he did it and carried on to show her how well he could do. He then asked my partner can we go to the shops and he went down the stairs and walked to the shop. Bev was so patient with my son and this is a positive quality she has.

For my other son she supported me through help with his bed wetting. She gave me a number of different techniques to try and she completed a referral to Enuresis service. Within 3 months he was dry at night and I no longer need to go and see the consultant.

Bev has also supported me with a few other family issues and given me so much positive advice and support. I am just about to start a new life in a new home in a new area and this is all down to the support, advice and encouragement from Bev.

She is one in a million school nurse that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. If there was an award I could give to Bev it would be for being caring and putting people before herself. My two boys would also like to say a great big thank you Bev, and they are going to miss seeing her.

Please could you share this with her and I hope the new school nurse I have is as caring and supportive as Bev.

Thank you very much for sharing your positive experiences and thanks for your school nurse, Bev. I am delighted that you have had such great support. It sounds as though she has had a big impact on your family. I will of course pass on your comments and I am sure Bev will be delighted to read them.

I hope your move to a new area goes smoothly and that you continue to get whatever support you need as a family. It sounds as though Bev will miss all of you too!

Best wishes
