Health Visitors

Health visitors are qualified nurses with additional qualifications. They aim to promote physical, emotional and social wellbeing with both individuals and the population as a whole and are central to improving public health.

Health visitors have a strong emphasis on working with families before and after their babies are born and they continue to work with children in their early years. This can help to prevent difficulties or identify problems early on and provide additional support as needed.

To contact a Health Visitor, please telephone 0191 643 2868
