Health Visitors

Health Visitors are available to provide advice for children up to the age of 4 years, undertake child health surveillance and child protection, feeding and weaning advice, baby weighing, sleep problem advice, post natal depression counselling, and advice to smoking parents.

If you are expecting a baby, the Health Visitor will be in contact when you are approximately 36 weeks pregnant as they offer a visit to all prospective parents. The next routine contact is at approximately 28 days after delivery in your home. This visit involves a discussion of any concerns and routine checks. Any problems with feeding, sleeping, child development, family support can be discussed. Follow up visits are offered until mother and baby have had their first postnatal examinations at the surgery at approximately six and eight weeks after delivery respectively.

Further support throughout the early years is provided with routine checks at 9 months, 2 years and 3 years. Baby immunisations will be arranged with the doctor or Practice Nurse.

A Health Visitor can be contacted on 01270 275875.
