They work with parents to assess the support they need to help give their child the best possible start in life. They offer parenting support and advice on family health, including minor illnesses, breastfeeding, physical and development checks and mental health.

Health visitors provide practical help and advice and also promote good health and prevent ill health. They will discuss different health messages such as obesity, childhood illness, sexual health and alcohol with parents and and ask them how they are feeling. Our health visitors will offer developmental reviews to see if your child is developing as expected for their age. If you become concerned about your child’s progress or development at any time, you are encouraged to contact your health visitor.

Our health visiting teams can also work more closely to help and support you and your family if you need extra support, for example support with post-natal depression, behaviour management or concerns about the health and development of your child.

They can refer you to other services to support you with more specialist problems if necessary. Staff work closely with other services and agencies such as education, local authority, GPs and children’s centres.
