Medical Conditions Awareness

In response to the planned return of all children to education settings in the Autumn term 2020, Warwickshire School Health and Wellbeing Service have reviewed the delivery of Medical Conditions Training following enquiries, requests and feedback from schools.

The service will now be offering free Medical Conditions training on a cluster basis in four localities across Warwickshire. The session will include Asthma, Anaphylaxis and Epilepsy and will be delivered by School Nurses, adhering to social distancing guidance.

These cluster training sessions will have limited places due to these restrictions and we would appreciate if you could confirm if your school wishes to send any delegates to a session. We are currently looking for venues that can hold 40 delegates safely, please contact us if you are able to offer your school. 

To ensure that all schools are supported, there will be free awareness webinars providing relevant information on Asthma, Anaphylaxis and Epilepsy. A demonstration on how to use an auto injector will be shown during the webinars. The webinar will be available to schools from 1st September 2020.

Training will also be provided to staff where Buccal Midazolam is needed for a newly diagnosed, or new pupil in school.
