Health Visiting and School Nursing
The Health Visiting team can support families from late pregnancy until your child turns 5 years of age. They offer all families the healthy child programme, health and development contacts up to the 2 to 2 and a half -year review. They can also support up to school entry if families need help and support - then there is a handover to School Nursing colleagues, if necessary.
Your School Nurse is available to your child and family from when they start school until they transition into adult services. This means your School Nurse will be accessible and visible to children and young people through primary school to secondary school with the aim of promoting health and wellbeing of the school aged population.
