Health Visitors are all registered nurses with additional qualifications and specialist training in Health Promotion and Child Development. In addition to their core service to the 0 – 5 age group of monitoring child health and development, they can also be consulted for advice on other child-rearing matters, e.g. behavioural management, nutritional and parenting factors.
They also offer support during stressful times, such as relationship breakdown, social problems, bereavement or post-natal depression. The Health Visitors can be contacted at Fleet Hospital on 01252 813842.
