Health Visitors

Contacting our linked Health Visitor

A health visitor is a qualified nurse or midwife who has had extra training. They're there to help you, your family and your new baby stay healthy.

Your health visitor can visit you at home, or you can see them at your child health clinic, GP surgery or health centre, depending on where they're based.

Talk to your health visitor if you’re struggling with your mental health. They can give you advice and suggest where to find help.

They may also be able to put you in touch with groups where you can meet other parents.

You can be seen with your baby at the Baby clinic and have them weighed by booking into one of the following baby clinics.

How to help your unwell child - leaflet for parents and carers of children under 5 years old



This booklet has been designed by a team of experts to help you care for your sick child. It will help you identify when an illness is minor and when it is serious. We recommend treating minor illnesses at home, where your child will be most comfortable.

When should I worry booklet

Having an ill child can be a very scary experience for parents. If you understand more about the illness it can help you to feel more in control. This booklet is for parents (and older children) and deals with common infections in children who are normally healthy. It is not meant for children who have ongoing health problems such as asthma, heart, or kidney problems. You should not rely on the advice in this leaflet for children who are less than 3 months old. Babies younger than this can respond differently to infections. This booklet is not a substitute for medical advice but is a resource we find helpful to guide parents in caring for their children.

Chicken Pox Vaccination

The Chicken pox vaccine is not currently part of the NHS vaccine schedule and therefore not available at the surgery.  Should  you wish for your child to receive this vaccine please contact a private provider. If your child is scheduled to receive the chicken pox vaccine, please ensure they either received their MMR vaccine from us on the same day or with a 4 week gap.

Mental Health Support for children and young people

Please consult with us regarding any concerns you may have about yourself or your child at any age. For those aged over 11 there are locally comissioned services available in addition to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health team. Please see the wellbeing and self referral page for more information about how to access these services.
