Health visitors work with parents and carers to ensure that children have the best start in life and are able to achieve their full potential.

Every family with children under five has a named health visitor who offers support and encouragement through the early years from pregnancy and birth, to primary school and beyond to support you to stay healthy and avoid illness.
