Young Greenwich Greenwich


We are having to alter some of our services in response to the demands that Coronavirus is creating. This means that we may have less staff and will be unable to continue to provide services in the way we usually do. Therefore, we may need to do the following:

  • We may carry out consultations via phone or video call
  • The frequency of our visits for your care might be reduced
  • If the care you receive is not essential, it might be stopped for the time being.

We will speak with you about any new arrangements we need to put in place. We will inform any other people involved in your care of any changes made. 

If you need to contact us, please call 0208 836 8621. There are Duty school nurses every working day. 

We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this time. 

Young Greenwich nurses work in youth hubs and support schools across the borough to provide advice and information on a number of topics, including:

  • general health issues
  • feeling sad or anxious
  • relationships
  • diet and exercise
  • weight issues
  • bullying
  • growing up
  • sexual health issues
  • smoking cessation.

How to access the service

The service is available for all school aged children in schools across the borough. Access is through the youth hubs, school or contact us through the daily duty team on 0208 317 6319 or email:

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide. 

Due to the current pandemic, this survey is completed via text messaging.

Dear Denise

Thank you for contacting us and letting us know about the situation. A member of the team will be in touch to advise you on next steps for your son to receive his Covid vaccine as there are options available.

Best wishes


Lisa Thompson
Director of Children & Young People's Services

Hello, sorry to bother you. My son attends Harris Academy Greenwich and was due his covid vaccine last week as he's 15. I waited for confirmation from NHS but the only message I received is for him to go to St Thomas's Hospital. Do you know if you are going back to his school to do maybe a catch up vaccine programme and whether his name could be added please?
He has had all the other vaccines offered at school so I cannot see what happened this time?

Kind regards
Denise (mum)
