Information For Families

If you have a seriously ill child or young person and are looking for help, we have a number of different ways we can support you.

The main way you can access support is through a Roald Dahl Specialist Nurse at you local NHS service. Our Nurses support long term, complex conditions like epilepsy, Sickle Cell Anaemia, rare diseases and neurological conditions.

Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses

Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses are a vital lifeline to you, your children and families, supporting you clinically and emotionally. They co-ordinate care and are often there for you until adulthood. Although Roald Dahl Nurses operate across a number of different specialisms, they are all specialist nurses who make a huge difference.
Roald Dahl Nurses can be found across the UK working in NHS Trusts and Health Boards. You can find out more about them here.
