Our health visiting teams work with mothers, their families, and community groups to promote the health and wellbeing of children between the antenatal period and the child's fifth year of age.

By helping parents learn and develop the skills required to bring up their children, our health visitors help give the new generation the best possible start in life.
 

Who we see

Our health visiting teams provide advice and support in a number of areas including:

  • Antenatal groups
  • New birth visits, including advice on feeding, safe sleep, parental emotional wellbeing and child health
  • Maternal and infant feeding contacts at 6-8 weeks
  • Child health and developmental reviews (9 months - 1 year and 2 years - 2.5 years)
  • General parenting support
  • Advice on family health and minor illnesses
  • Specific support on subjects such as postnatal depression
  • Advice on immunisations and national screening programmes
  • Support children and families during the transition to school

We also run a targeted health visiting service for children and families who require extra support. This service assesses each child and family and introduces them into appropriate services, such as speech and language therapy.

In these children and families may be offered continued support from the 0-19 service after they reach school age.

Our health visiting teams work in a range of locations in the community including people's homes, health centres and children's centres.

The core hours of our health visiting service are Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

For urgent health advice please call 111 or in an emergency 999
