One of TLM questionnaires completed via the HAPI Portal by a parent of a child at school entry generated a high number of alerts in relation sensory development problems. The parents of this child were contacted swiftly by phone and following further investigation several problems were identified for both the child being assessed and an older sibling aged 8 years old. Due to the alerts, a face to face holistic health interview was carried out with the mother, both children and a member of the school nursing team.
This resulted in a further more in depth health assessment on both children and care pathways to address their needs. The mother was very appreciative for the early proactive contact and impressed with the health questionnaire process. The health needs clearly identified for both children are now being monitored and supported by the school nursing team, rather than going undetected.
