Health Visitor Services
The Health Visiting service is made up of a team of specialist nurses who offer advice and guidance to parents with children aged 0 to 5 years old.
We offer a wide range of support and advice on things like:
- baby clinics
- growth and development
- minor ailments
- support groups
We can also connect you with other agencies if you need advice or support around housing, benefits or debt.
We’ll support you and your family until your child goes to school. We do this through a national scheme called the Healthy Child Programme.
The programme includes a number of ‘reviews’, during which we’ll talk about how your child is doing and discuss any concerns you have. These reviews might take place in your home, a child development clinic or a children’s centre.
We work closely with other health professionals and if appropriate we might refer you and your child to other specialist services.
