Health Visiting & School Nursing
In light of the current pandemic and recent guidance from the Department of Health, CHCP’S Health Visiting and School Nursing will be reducing its service.
Due to recent government guidance on COVID 19 and social distancing all Child Health Clinics are suspended for now.
We will still visit every new baby between 10-14 days old, but many of our follow-up visits and child development reviews will now move to telephone consultations.
If you have any concerns about your baby or child or wish to speak to a health visitor or school nurse please call our duty number: 01482 336634 / 344301 Monday – Friday 8.30am to 5pm.
Our school nurse service can also be contact by texting SCHOOLNURSE to 61825*.
