The aim of the Public Health Nursing service is to provide a culturally safe health service, that protects the health of children and young people.

Their work includes education sessions in schools, parenting, behavioural concerns, child abuse, immunisation, infectious diseases, referral to health camp and regular self-referral clinics in intermediate and secondary schools, any general health concerns and B4 School Checks.
