Text a Nurse

A new Text-a-Nurse service has been launched to provide young people with a secure and confidential text messaging service to a school nurse for advice and support.

They will respond to all messages within 24 hours, Monday to Friday. The aim is to provide a timely, and convenient access to confidential health advice for young people aged 11-19 in Northern Ireland.
