Lancashire County Council, which funds this service, has announced that the service will transfer to Wirral Community Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust during 2024.

Services will continue to operate as normal, appointments will continue as planned, and we will be working closely with the new provider to transfer the services without interruption to you over the coming months.

Further information will be shared via this website as and when appropriate. You do not need to contact the service.

Child Health Clinics

Face-to-face clinics for parents and carers.

Our Child Health Clinics give an opportunity for parents and carers with any concerns about their baby to receive some face-to-face support from our Health Visiting Team.

Both ‘drop-in’ and ‘appointment only’ clinics are available.

Parents and carers are able to book an appointment either through their health visitor or by contacting our Single Point of Access via VCL.019.SinglePointOfAccess2@nhs.net or 0300 247 0040.

If e-mailing, please provide your child’s name, date of birth, address and contact number and your health visitor will be in touch to discuss an appointment.

Alternatively if parents or carers would like to attend a drop-in session, details of these can be found below.
