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.

Our Single Point of Access (SPA) is the key point of contact for children, young people, families, GPs and health and social care professionals to access advice and support. Call 0300 247 0040 or e-mail VCL.019.SinglePointofAccess@nhs.net
