Health visitors

Our health visitors are here to help you and your family to make sure your child has the very best start in life.

Having a child is wonderful, but it can be daunting. We will make sure you know what help is available to you from the birth of your child up to the age of four.

We are here to give you support, discuss any concerns you might have and offer you advice and where to find help if you need it and put you in touch with groups where you can meet other parents.

We offer you a dedicated appointment with your health visitor:

  • within 14 days following the birth of your child

and when your child is:

  • six to eight weeks
  • nine to 12 months
  • two years

I am pleased to have the support of the health visitor team as they have helped me with family life.

Any time you feel you need some extra support you can call your health visitor.

You will be referred to our service by child health or your midwife.
