Additional Information

The Health Visiting Service The aim of the Health Visiting service is to promote the health of the whole community and to help in promoting healthy lifestyles addressing concerns about physical and mental well being. All Health Visitors are qualified nurses or midwives, with additional special training and experience in child health, and health promotion and education. We offer practical support and advice in a host of diverse situations. We can be found at your local GP surgery working alongside practice staff, or at the local health centre or child health clinic. The health of your baby or young child Every family with children under 5 has a named Health Visitor who can advise on everyday difficulties such as teething, behaviour and sleeping problems, feeding as well as immunisation programmes, parenting classes, managing difficult behaviour and any special needs your child may have. Parenting and supporting young families Health Visitors can advise on employment and benefit rights support fathers-to-be and reassure new fathers about their role.
