The school health hub provides access to resources relating to the commissioning and delivery of health services for school children and young people and its associated good practice, including the new service offer for school nursing. It will be of use to all those interested in improving public health outcomes for children and young people including local authorities, public health, commissioners, providers, schools and governors, and public health nurses. This hub is a work in progress and will continue to be updated as resources and priorities are identified.
