Health Visiting

Having a child comes easily to some parents, where for others, the adjustments can be difficult. Health visitors work with all parents to assess the support they need and develop appropriate programs to help give the child the best possible start in life.

Health visitors support and educate families from pregnancy through to when your child starts reception class.

Health Visitor’s can offer:

  • Support from your family from ante natal through to when your child attends school.
  • Support and advice on family health and minor illnesses.
  • Home visit's which include advice on feeding, introduction to solids, healthy eating and dental health.
  • A physical and developmental check to ensure your child is reaching their full potential.
  • Providing families with specific support on subjects such as post natal depression.

Health visitor also work closely with other professionals including nursery nurses and Sure Start centre workers and nursery’s to provide the best service for your child.

The type of support can include:

  • Referring families to specialists, such as, speech and language therapists.
  • Arranging access to support groups, such as those provided by Sure Start children's centre's.
  • Organising practical support, for example- working with a nursery nurse on the importance of play.
  • Offering advice and further information on the housing issues, benefits, training and education.

Health visitors are also trained in recognising risk factors, triggers of concern, and signs of abuse and neglect in children.
