Bromley health visiting service is here to support you and your family during your children’s earliest years.
The health visiting service is there for you from the time that you are 28 weeks pregnant with your first baby, until your last little one goes off to school.
The health visiting team comprises of health visitors and community nursery nurses. Health visitors are registered nurses or Midwives who have completed additional specialist training in public health. Their additional training in public health enables them to assess the health needs of individuals, families and the wider community to promote good health and prevent illness.
Health Visitors deliver the Healthy Child Programme which aims to promote optimal health and wellbeing for all children and support parents at key points throughout the early years.
The service also supports families in which there are additional health, developmental, emotional or social needs, so the service provided to each particular family will vary according to a personalised assessment on your need.
We work in partnership with general practitioners, midwives, nurseries, schools, and voluntary organisations and work closely with Bromley Safeguarding Children’s Board to help protect children across Bromley.
These pages are packed with information to help you find all that you need to give your family a healthy lifestyle and support your baby’s development from the very beginning.
