Health visitors are qualified nurses or midwives with specialist public health training. They are available to support you in pregnancy, once your baby is born and until your child becomes five years of age. Health visiting teams advise on and support the health and wellbeing of babies, children and their families. Our team includes a community staff nurse and health care support worker.
They work with other agencies such as GPs, midwives, school health nurses, Children’s Centres and early years settings. They are trained in child development and safeguarding children.
Health visitors lead the Healthy Child Programme (Department of Health, 2009) and work to promote equal health opportunities in order to promote health and well being of children, families and communities.
