What is this about?

Northamptonshire County Council is responsible for making sure that all children and young people (aged 0-19) are safe, as healthy as they can, and that any health or development problems are seen as early as possible and the right treatment and care offered.

This includes offering all young people regular health assessments such as sight tests and height and weight measurements, help prevent against some diseases, help to deal with anxiety, stress and bullying, and advice and support to help keep a healthy weight, stop smoking or manage concerns about drugs or alcohol, pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

The service for young people is mainly delivered by School Nurses (these are registered nurses who have additional public health qualifications), and nurses who have been specially trained to deliver support to teenage parents, supported by nursery nurses and other support staff. The nurses work closely with family doctors, hospital A and E departments, Children’s Centres and social care staff.

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to get help and support when you need it. Please could you tell us your views by completing this short questionnaire. Closing date is 8th September 2017.

How can I help?

(Please note this questionnaire is aimed at children and young people, if you are an adult or a parent of someone 25 years old or younger then please complete the adult and parents questionnaire).

Please could you take about 5-10 minutes to tell us your views by completing this short questionnaire. To say thank you completed questionnaires will be put into a raffle and the first 3 names pulled out will win a gift voucher of £10. You don’t have to give us your contact details but if you do want to enter the raffle please tell us your name and contact details and the end of this survey.

Your feedback will be used to help us have a better understanding of people’s views on the services we provide and will help us shape the future of these services. Your feedback will be part of a report with many other people’s feedback, so you will not be personally identified.

You do not have to answer all of the questions. If you don’t want to answer a question, or don’t know the answer, then move on to the next question.
