Our Health visitors are nurses or midwives who work with families to give pre-school-age children healthy lifestyles and prevent illness.
Support is given to families as required and contact is maintained through mandated visits during the first two years of life. The role also involves multi-disciplinary work with GP’s, assistant practitioners, social workers, midwives, children’s centre staff and others as required.
Enquiries for Health Visiting should be directed to the appropriate team. You can find contact details by searching our directory by postcode.
