Community Children's Team - Bassetlaw

We are a team of specialist children’s nurses and trained healthcare support workers who visit children at home. We support children who have nursing care needs who are registered with a Bassetlaw GP, are aged between 0-19 years and who meet certain criteria.

We provide care at home for children with:

  • A life limiting / threatening disease / disability who can be safely cared for at home
  • A severe medical condition
  • A progressive condition resulting in significant health needs and a specialist nursing need

We accept referrals from:

  • Parents
  • School nurses
  • Health visitors
  • GPs
  • Social services
  • Education
  • Hospital and community services

We provide equipment and training to ensure children with significant health needs can access educational and community settings to reach their full potential. We can advise carers, schools and other community settings on children with moderate to severe learning disabilities, supporting in areas such as sleep, continence and behaviour management.


Paediatric Occupational Therapy Team

Our Paediatric Occupational Therapy Team also accepts referrals from health professionals and provides assessment support advice, therapy training and equipment for children with long or short term physical disabilities. Children who are struggling to carry out everyday tasks are also seen. We can visit children at home, school and other community settings. Our primary aim is to promote independence and skills for daily living.
