Who we are

Our friendly team of health visitors are specialist public health trained nurses who hold qualifications and skills in child health and development. 

Our aim is to support and guide you through the early years of your parenting journey and help you develop a close and loving relationship with your child. 

We are also able prescribe treatments for common childhood ailments such as thrush, nappy rash and dry skin.

We visit you at home and in community venues such as health centres and children’s centres, and work closely together with your GP, midwife, hospitals, schools and voluntary services.

Before your baby is born you will be offered an antenatal visit by your health visitor.  This is usually between 28 to 34 weeks. This is a chance to meet and look at topics for a healthy pregnancy and caring for baby.
