Health Visiting - Wirral Community NHS Foundation Trust

 

The Health Visiting Service in Wirral delivers the Healthy Child Programme to all parents and families of pre-school children.

 

Our team includes health visitors, community health nurses and nursery nurses. They are specialists in child health and development and provide a range of information, support and advice to ensure families are fully supported to give their children the best possible start in life. 

 

Working closely with parents we provide:

  • Antenatal visits
  • New birth visit – advice and support in caring for a new baby (10-14 days old) 
  • Contact at 4-8 weeks, 9-12 months and 2-2 ½ years – including physical and developmental reviews
  • Support for specific issues such as postnatal depression
  • One-to-one breastfeeding support
  • Feeding, weaning and dental health advice
  • Support and advice on family health and minor illnesses
  • Emotional and mental wellbeing support 
  • Child safety advice
  • Sleep or behaviour concerns
  • Parenting support
  • Information about other services and community groups (eg Children’s Centres, breastfeeding support groups)
  • Referrals into specialist services eg Speech and Language Therapy, Bladder and Bowel Service

 

The Trust also delivers the Family Nurse Partnership which offers a programme of intensive and structured support to first time mums who are aged 18 and under.
