Health Visiting

What we do

We work to improve the health and wellbeing of children and families in the crucial first years of life.

Our Health Visiting teams offer friendly support and advice and we work closely with GPs, midwives, school nurses and the wider local community.

The service is universal to all children and families, with a wider service to those with additional needs.

Universal Services – Offered to all

We provide the Healthy Child Programme to ensure a healthy start for your child, ongoing support for parents, and access to a range of community based services and resources. It is a universal service that is offered to all parents and includes:

  • a visit and check when your baby is 10-14 days old
  • a review for you and your baby at 6-8 weeks carried out by your GP/Health Visitor
  • a 10- 12 month health review
  • a 2-2 ½ year review, usually carried out by a nursery nurse

Targeted – Specific support when you need it

Targeted support gives parents an expert response from health visitors when specific help is needed. This may be in the case of:

  • Post-natal depression
  • Sleep problems
  • Breastfeeding
  • Other feeding issues
  • Speech development
  • Concerns regarding your child’s behaviour and/or development

Specialist – Ongoing support for families with more complex needs

Specialist support provides ongoing support from health visiting teams plus a range of local services that help with more complex issues. These include Family Hubs, other community services including some charities when appropriate, and the Family Nurse Partnership. For example:

  • Families living with disabilities
  • Mental health issues
  • Drug and alcohol related problems
  • Learning disabilities
  • Complex family circumstances
  • Support with domestic violence
