Welcome

Being a parent is a wonderful and rewarding experience. We want to help you enjoy parenting and we will support you during times when you may need some extra help or advice.

This site has been developed by Sutton School Nursing Service delivered by The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust. We are working together to improve the lives of all children, young people, and their families in Sutton.

The emotional wellbeing of children and young people is just as important as their physical health. Approaching adolescence is a key time as mind and body are rapidly developing. If parents are confident they are doing all they can to make sure their children and young people are safe, well-nourished and learn actively and create opportunities which build social and emotional confidence, they can rest assured that they are doing all they can to lay the path for a happy and positive future.

As well as general wellbeing, this site will help you to understand when is the right time to call NHS 111, take a day off school, visit your GP, chat to your school nurse or take a visit to your local pharmacy.

Every parent wants to know what to do if their child or young person is unwell and how to recognise the signs. Trust your instincts, you know your child best.
