The Chestnut Tree House team includes specialist nurses who work closely with a child or young person, their family and the professionals involved in their care.

They provide a hands-on approach giving support and advice in symptom management for any child or young person (aged 0-19 years) with complex health needs or a life-shortening illness living in Sussex or South East Hampshire.
