Children & Young People

The Children and Young People's service is primarily responsible for the provision of public health nursing to children, young people and families across the city.  This includes health visiting, school nursing, safeguarding support, as well as a range of specialist public health services.

The Children and Young People's business unit also provides information governance and clinical governance to all services in Cith Health Care Partnership CIC. 

There are many exciting developments for Children and Young People's services, including health led parenting, the development of a Special Services Team which integrates safeguarding support, with support for domestic violence and homelessness, as well as enhanced support for infant feeding and school nurse programmes.

Our community children’s services are a well-established team of specialist children’s nurses and practitioners, who are there to ensure that our future generations have the best start to their lives.

Our services support children aged 0 - 18 and their families, and are somewhat diverse, ranging from community nursing, health visiting, school nursing and healthy lifestyle services which include asthma services and immunisations, through to providing high quality care to children with more complex and long term health needs.

School Health Plus, an innovative service launched in 2012, works in partnership with schools to deliver bespoke services over and above the core school nursing services.
