Health care nurse at your own school

You can contact the school nurse by phone.

If no one answers your call, you can leave your contact details through voice mail and the nurse will contact you.

Walk-in hours (an appointment without booking)

You can also visit the nurse during their walk-in hours to discuss any health and wellbeing issues that may affect a child’s or young person’s school attendance and performance. Information on walk-in hours is provided on the school’s page via a Wilma bulletin. We do not discuss health-related issues on Wilma or You can`t do appointment on Wilma

Sick children or young people must not go to school or visit the nurse during their walk-in hours. This prevents the spread of infections (e.g. common cold, stomach flu) in the school community.

Pupils can visit the nurse during the walk-in hours for example to:

  • talk about any worries they may have;
  • ask for advice concerning health and wellbeing;
  • book an appointment with the school nurse or the school doctor;
  • get vaccinated or have other minor procedures.

If necessary, the nurse will book an appointment for the pupil or refer them to other services. The nurse will also give the pupil written feedback on their visit, if necessary. If the pupil needs further treatment, the school nurse will contact the pupil’s guardian.
