How can we help?

Some parents find the early years of a child's life both satisfying and rewarding but also challenging and frustrating. This is where the health visiting team can help you. By working together, we can help ease some of the worries of being a parent and support you and your family to raise a happy and healthy child.

The Healthy Child Programme that you and your baby will be offered, includes regular health and development reviews during their early years. It is carried out by your Health and Children's Centre team.

This is recommended to make sure that your child stays healthy and is developing normally. Reviews provide you with time to ask questions and discuss any concerns you may have. These reviews can be done:

  • in your home
  • at your GP surgery
  • at a clinic
  • at a Children's Centre
