How we represent forum members

  • Representing nurses whose role includes supporting the improvement of the public’s health in nearly every area of nursing practice and specialist areas.
  • Supporting those working in community nursing teams from district nurses, health visitors and school nurses to occupational health nurses.
  • Providing guidance for those with more specialist roles working in, for example; sexual health, health protection, tuberculosis treatment and prevention, immunisation and travel health.
