Team of the Week: Health Visiting

July 8, 2021

Our team of the week is our Health Visiting Service – they support families with young children, working within local communities, utilising their extensive knowledge of local areas and their respective services.

Health visitors are registered nurses or midwives; they are a team highly skilled in helping support families lead as healthy lives as possible, both physically and emotionally. When parents or carers are concerned about the health or development of a child, the team are on hand to discuss potential options such as referrals to specialist services such as speech and language therapy, physiotherapy or to a paediatrician.

Meanwhile our Community nursery nurses work alongside health visitors and have a range of childcare related qualifications which gives them expert knowledge of child health and development. Our Public health nurses are registered nurses and they also work with other professionals to support children with complex medical needs as well as specialist educational needs and their families within the community.
