Description

Our children’s services provide a streamlined service for children from 0-19 years. We work closely with other services such as midwifery, child and adolescent mental health services, schools, children’s centres, GP’s and other organisations in your community.

Children’s services include a safeguarding team, our school nurses, who strive to help children and young people get the best out of life and benefit fully from education, and our health visiting service which is available to all new families and has expertise in child health and development.

Our looked after children’s health team works closely with social care services to help children and young people aged 0-21 who are looked after.  We also have a youth offending team who look after and promote the health needs of children and young people who are involved in the criminal justice system.

The family nurse partnership service supports women aged 19 and under who are expecting their first child.
