The service delivers a combined health visiting and school nursing service for 0-19 year olds.
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.
The service is for children from birth to five years of age whose families are residents of Harrow.
Clients are seen at Milmans Children’s Health Hub, Children Centres and health centres, as well as their own home, where appropriate.
You can self refer. Please contact us if you are worried about:
- Your child's health and development
- Your own ability to cope due to stress or ill health
- Other family problems affecting your children
