Health Visiting


Our health visiting team includes health visitors, student health visitors, community nursery nurses, student nurses and administrators.

Health visitors are qualified nurses that have completed a specialist community public health degree. Health visitors lead on the ‘Healthy Child Programme‘.

Health visitors also work in partnership with other services such as GPs, midwives, social workers, children’s centre staff, therapists, paediatricians and dieticians to name a few.


When your child goes to school, the school nursing service will take over the delivery of the healthy child programme.

Each school will have a named school nurse team.

Each school nurse team is made up of staff with different mixes of skill, and different members of the team will deliver elements of the school nurse service, according to their skills and competencies.
