Roald Dahl Nurse Specialists

Roald Dahl Nurses are a vital lifeline to children, young people, and families, supporting them clinically and emotionally. They co-ordinate care and are often there for families 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.
