Welcome to the Anglian Community Enterprise Website, Children’s Service section designed especially for young people

aged between 13 and 16 years of age.


On this section you will find lots of links to information about services that offer advice and support with health issues that may be affecting you. Please do have a look at the links.

 

We the 5-19 Health Improvement Service Team are nurses and nursery nurses and would like to support you if you have any concerns, so please contact us. We will always get back to you.

If you would like to speak to one of the Team or make arrangements to meet with a  nurse please contact us on our HUB number 01255 206258  or email us on ACECIC.5-19his@NHS.NET 

 

You can also access your 5-19 Health Improvement Service in most schools as we regularly  offer ‘Drop In’ sessions, where you can just come along and talk to one of us. Look out for our posters or ask at the school reception.

We also have ‘Drop In’ sessions in the community for anyone and everyone where you can just come along and talk to one of us. The dates and times are advertised locally.


We look forward to hearing from you.
