Health Visiting and Children's Centre service

Find out about the Health Visiting and Children's Centre Service, which is based around the Healthy Child Programme.

Please be aware that some of our teams are still trying to catch up with their 1 and 2 year developmental checks following COVID. 

This means there may be a delay with you and your child being invited to an appointment. Please bear with us during this time.

If you have any concerns about your child’s health/development and have not had an appointment as yet, do contact us on 03456 078866 or email

Many teams are able to offer appointments as planned 1-year reviews are offered when your child is around 12 months old and 2-year reviews are offered when your child is around 27 months old.
