Our health visiting teams work with parents, carers and families to promote the health and wellbeing of children from pregnancy until school age. Health Visitors are nurses or midwives who have undertaken additional training in community public health nursing. By supporting parents to learn and develop the skills required to bring up their children, our health visiting teams help give the new generation the best possible start in life.
