A health visitor is usually in the office between 09:00 and 10:00 and 16:00 and 17:00; otherwise a message may be left with the health visitor’s secretary or receptionist on 01932 356812.
Our health visitors work closely with our midwife providing parenthood classes. Their prime function is to promote good health through education and to give parents an understanding of their child’s development. Apart from child health clinics, they also carry out routine developmental checks on pre-school children.
