How do I get an appointment?
Your child needs to be referred to this service by a healthcare worker, such as your GP or health visitor.
Cancelling or changing your appointment
Your child will be given an appointment with a named health professional. Please contact him/her directly to change or cancel the appointment. You will find their contact details on the appointment letter that you will be sent.
During your appointment
You and your child will be seen at a development centre (either Mary Sheridan Centre in Lambeth or Sunshine House in Southwark), in your own home, at school or at a children’s centre.
The health professional will talk to you about your child and their day-to-day needs.
Most first appointments last one hour.
After your appointment
Your health professional will discuss what follow up is needed and whether there is anyone either they or you need to contact.
