Elaine Allan Lead nurse school nursing, Aberdeen City Community Health Partnership, Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, Scottish School Health Network, Aberdeen

This article outlines the challenges of supporting one school nursing team through a period of unprecedented change–moving from being part of the Combined Child Health Service in the Grampian region of Scotland and part of the acute sector, to becoming part of Aberdeen City Community Health Partnership Children’s Services. The article describes the reasons for the change, the challenges and opportunities generated and the ways in which good leadership facilitated a smooth transition.
