COVID19:

Due to the ongoing pandemic, and to help keep you and our colleagues safe we’re following national guidance and minimising face to face contacts. We will continue to support you through video consultation, telephone consultations and virtual clinics and we’ll see you face to face where this is safe, and the most appropriate way to support you in line with the national guidance.

Lancashire Healthy Young People and Families Service provides health visiting and school nursing services across the county.

Health visiting

We provide support from the antenatal period through the first 5 years of your child’s life. This includes health promotion, monitoring child development and advising on healthy growth, including feeding and caring for you baby, providing support with common health problems and working with other professionals to support and safeguard young families, children and their carers.

School nursing

We support children and young people aged 5-19, carrying out the National Child Measurement Programme and School Health Needs Assessments and also providing advice on health promotion, wellbeing and health issues for older children and teenagers.
