Health visiting service

Our community health visiting service is for families in Lambeth or Southwark who have a child under the age of five.

Health visitors provide a child and family focused service that promotes health and well-being and prevents ill health. All children under the age of five should have a named health visitor. 

Our health visitors lead smaller teams of community staff nurses, child development workers and administrators.

Depending on the age of your child, you may see a variety of staff who will provide assessment and advice. They will also check to see if your child is meeting his or her developmental milestones.

Our staff will see you either in your home or at a children's centre, health centre or GP practice.

We work in partnership with GPs and other healthcare professionals, social workers, children’s centre staff and voluntary agencies to support families with children under five.

We also play a key role in safeguarding children and child protection.
