About the service

The Health Visiting Service is a specialist team that provides advice, support and intervention to families with children in the first years of life and helps empower parents to make decisions that affect their family’s future health and wellbeing. The team can offer you and your family support before your baby arrives, in the early weeks after birth and as your child grows. Staff work alongside you and your family with any parenting issues and guide you to find your local services and groups that can also support you as a parent.

The service is led by health visitors and is supported by community staff nurses, nursery nurses and administrative staff.

You can find out more about the service in our leaflet (PDF)
