Children's health services

The Public Health Nursing service is provided by CHCP (City Health Care Partnership). The service aims to prevent ill health, promote and protect good health and wellbeing of children aged 0 to 19 years of age and their families. 

The 0 -11 Public Health Nursing Team is led by Health Visitors who provide key visits during a child’s first five years. 
Continuing support is available if required through to the age of 11 years.  

They support families who need additional help with -

  • health issues
  • weaning
  • behavior
  • sleep
  • bed wetting
  • depression
  • identifying early developmental delay
  • accessing the right services for long term support; including transition to school.

The 11-19 Public Health Nursing Team works with young people to improve health and wellbeing and provide advice and support on a range of topics through school based “Pop-Ins”. 
If you aged 11-19 years old, you can access the service directly by telephone, or book through your school or college, to talk to a nurse on a range of topics that may be concerning you, including -

  • sexual health
  • emotional health and relationships
  • weight concerns
  • physical health
  • management of a long term condition or complex health needs
  • help and support to access to other services, including advice on immunisations.
