Oxfordshire Children’s Respite Nursing Team
The Oxfordshire Children’s Respite Nursing Team is a team of nurses working with the Children’s Community Nurses.
The team consists of registered children’s nurses and a play specialist. All the nurses have a wide range of experience in working with children and their families.
The Children’s Respite Nursing Team offers respite care in the home for children with complex healthcare needs. Children must live in Oxfordshire to be eligible to receive care.
The service is available from Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm. However, they try to be as flexible as possible and can consider occasional weekday evenings. They may be able to increase respite if acute illness or crisis occurs. Sessions are normally three hours in duration, weekly or fortnighly.
Any healthcare professional can make a referral following discussion with the family. Referrals can be made by telephone, email or post. Please use their Community Children’s Nursing and Respite referral form.
