Students will soon be able to text their school nurse for appointments as part of a scheme by the Department of Health.
Andrew Lansley, health secretary, believes that the plans are part of a long-term vision to get young people more engaged with their school or college nurse. It plans to make sure health worker have a bigger role in the patient's life as well improving the standard of care for adolescents.
Whilst prime minister David Cameron has been accused of unfairly treating those in UK medical jobs over the proposed health reforms, this news will come as a welcome boost for patients and workers alike.
Mr Lansley believes that school nurses have a vital role to play within the health system and this new service will cut out any embarrassment some students may have when making appointments.
The health secretary said: "School nurses are hugely important they can give young people advice on all aspects of health care. We're going to work with school pupils to look at more innovative ways to get advice and support from school nurses."
