School Nurse

Hello. My name is Jacqui Gillbanks. I am the School Health nurse for Gosford Hill School.  

I am a school health nurse on the development programme. I am based at Gosford Hill School and I also work occasionally in other schools delivering the national immunisation programme.

Some of the things I can help students with include:

  • Puberty
  • Personal Hygiene
  • Bladder and Bowel problems
  • Supporting young people with medical conditions in school
  • Supporting young people with emotional wellbeing
  • Sexual Health and Relationships
  • All aspects of young people’s physical, emotional and mental health

I also provide staff training in medical conditions and run Health Promotion Events in school as part of the PSHE curriculum.

I am based in Portas with the School Counsellor and my working hours are Monday – Friday 9am-3pm. The School Health Service is confidential which means you can share personal information with me and I won’t share it with a third party unless I have concerns about your safety. If I need to share information, I will discuss this with you first.

As well as promoting health in children and young people, School Health nurses also help protect young people’s health through delivery of the national immunisation programme.

I run a lunch time drop-in on a Tuesday and Thursday. You can come and see me to make an appointment, or you can self-refer by placing a note in the box outside the Portas building.

I look forward to supporting you with any health issues that may arise during your time at Gosford Hill School.

You can email me at or text or call me on 07769 743320.

Kind regards, Jacqui Gillbanks
