Health visiting service

What it is

The service comprises of three teams which include health visitors, community staff nurses, nursery nurses and administrative staff.

We work closely with children’s centres, social care and other health care professionals as well as your general practitioner (GP). Our service is offered to all families with children 0 to 5 years that live in Hillingdon.

Health visitors

Health visitors are qualified nurses or midwives with specialist training in child development and public health, and they lead the national healthy child programme. Our role is to assess your health needs in partnership with you. We will plan and provide services which support you and your wider family as required.

Community staff nurses

Community staff nurses work alongside health visitors and are registered nurses with special interest in child development, health promotion and the prevention of ill health.

Nursery nurses

Nursery nurses are qualified in child care and development and work alongside others in the team. They work with families and children either on an individual basis or in groups. Nursery nurses are skilled in areas such as sleep management, behaviour management, play and baby massage.
