Meet our WellChild Nurses
Meet some of our WellChild Nurses and the families they support.
WellChild Nurse Rachel and Maddison Rachel is predominantly based in the community, providing support, training and care for both invasively and non-invasively ventilated children and their families and as such is their vital link between hospital to home.
WellChild Nurse Ruth and Daire WellChild Nurse Ruth provides children with Complex Needs in Northern Ireland a dedicated point of contact to address issues in their care and allow them to remain at home, at times where currently they would require a hospital admission.
I am proud of being a WellChild nurse and working with children with medical complexities and their families to ensure they receive the best possible care. This post allows for a more coordinated discharge and a central point of contact for questions and concerns before and once they get home. Supporting families through a traumatic event and putting services in place is the tip of the iceberg, working with families to ensure they can make the most out of the resources and achieve a good quality of life as they transition from hospital is where a WellChild Nurse role can really make a difference.
