Who we are

We are a team of people who work with other services, such as the School Nursing Service, health visitors and children’s community nurses, to support children and young people with an identified respiratory condition.

What we do

We work closely with hospital paediatricians to identify children and young people who need support and we work with our partners to care for them.

We provide education and information about respiratory conditions and current treatments to make sure staff work together to meet each child’s needs and our aim it to improve the child’s quality of life as well as helping to control their condition.

We work across east Kent in homes, schools, nurseries, colleges, clinics and hospitals and we run community clinics in Margate, Canterbury, Dover and Ashford.

You can get in touch using the information here or you can be referred by a GP or healthcare professional.
