Health visiting

Details of the Health Visiting Service, which is based around the Healthy Child Programme.

They are a team of specialist community public health nurses who provide expert information, assessments and interventions for babies, children and families.

Additional assistance is provided for those with specific needs that may impact future health and well-being.

Health visitors

All health visitors are qualified nurses or midwives who have an additional degree or diploma. They help to empower parents to make positive decisions that affect their family’s health and well-being.

The service is available between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Teams are based at:

  • clinics
  • health centres
  • children’s centres
  • extended schools

We also work with families in their own homes.

Here is a list of our health visiting teams.  

Please note, our Health Visiting Service does not include Lowestoft and Waveney areas, which are covered by East Coast Community Healthcare
