Health Visiting Service

Health and wellbeing for pre-school children

What does the service offer?

The Health Visiting Service provides professional care, support and advice to promote and achieve health and wellbeing for pre-school children.

The Service is available to antenatal women, pre-school children and their families.

Health Visitors work in partnership with all parents, carers and other organisations to support them in giving their children the best possible start in life.

About health visitors

Health Visitors are trained nurses who have undergone additional training and who have expertise and experience in child health and development and family health in general.

Other members of the Health Visiting Team include Early Years Support Workers who are trained to work with children in the early years and administration staff who provide support to them.

All team members work together to ensure that you receive the service you need. View a list of our health visitors.
