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.

About us

We provide health visiting services, health advice (from antenatal through to the first 5 years of your child’s life) and school nursing services for 5 to 19-year-olds.

Our healthy family team will arrange to visit you at home to provide advice on your antenatal care and the care of your baby and young children. In the first few months we will monitor your baby’s growth and development providing advice or referral to another professional for any issues that arise. Later we will monitor your young child’s development and readiness for school.

School nurses usually see children at school or college in order to provide health and wellbeing advice. Parents and carers will be sent information about the visits that the school nurse makes to the school and permission will be sought for the National Child Measurement Programme when this takes place.
