Services are not expected to change

School and visiting nurses around the borough are set to be coming from a new healthcare provider.

Oxleas NHS Trust is handing over its running of health visiting and school nursing services to Bromley Healthcare, which provides health services across four different boroughs including Bexley.

The change means public health services for newborns up to 19-year-olds will remain the same, but the provider will change in a bid for efficiency.

Director of adult social care and health at the council Stuart Rowbotham called the move “good news” for families.

He said: “This will lead to a more joined up approach in the delivery of children’s public health services.

“I’d like to thank Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust for delivering the old health visiting and school nursing services which will continue until 31 May.

“We will continue to work with them to provide specialist services for children in the borough.”

Bromley Healthcare will continue to provide services with children as well as circulating health advice and information.
