Text – a - Nurse Service

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.


  • The service is aimed at 11 to 19 year olds and will be delivered by the School Nursing Teams.


“A qualified school nurse will respond to the young people’s messages using the secure ChatHealth web platform. ChatHealth is an award winning service in the UK and is the first of its kind in Northern Ireland and will transform the way young people communicate with health professionals.”


  • Text-a –Nurse is manned by a team of school nurses between the hours of 9am -5pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays), they will respond to all messages within 24 hours Monday – Friday. Our aim is to provide a timely, and convenient access to confidential health advice for young people aged 11-19 in Northern Ireland.
