Health Services

Our Specialist Intervention Services (SIS) team provide all aspects of health and psychological services and are core to what we provide to young people within Rossie.

Our multi-disciplinary SIS team works collaboratively with care and education staff to improve the physical, emotional and behavioural wellbeing of our young people. We work in partnership with our young people ensuring they are at the centre of their care plans. We work in partnership with community based health and social care providers, and combine our expertise with theirs to build the best intervention plans for all of our young people. This is an important operating principle of our work.

Admissions Health Assessment

We gather and establish as much information as possible at the referral stage so we can prepare any necessary medications or attend to other health requirements prior to a young person arriving.

Health service routines for our young people

As part of our health services routine, we hold a clinic every morning, Monday to Friday. We assess and treat minor illness or injury and we refer on when necessary.

Medication profile

We provide each young person with a ‘Medication Profile’ – a document containing information about any known allergies, any medication they are on (if any) with the name, dose, reasons for requiring the medication, and the potential side effects.
