Health Visiting Service for 0 to 4 years

The Health Visiting Service is a Universal Service and is automatically informed of the birth of all babies by the midwifery services. Contact will be made by the service and a visit arranged for a day between 10 to 14 days following the birth. If your baby is diagnosed with additional medical needs requiring additional support, this is usually referred to all appropriate services at the time of diagnosis.

Health visitors offer support and advice to parents and families with children up to 5 years of age and will be able to support you should you have concerns at a later stage with your child's development.

If you move into the area, you can visit your local Child Health Clinic or Children's Centre to enquire who your Health Visitor might be and how to contact them.

Contact your local Health Visitor
