Health Visiting Service Greenwich

The health visiting service provides an inclusive universal service to families from the antenatal period until their child enters school. The service provides a child and family focussed service to promote health and prevent ill health working with both individuals and communities and dealing with issues regarding local population health.

The health visiting team consists of community staff nurses, nursery nurses, breastfeeding advocates and clerical officers and is led by the health visitors who are also known as specialist community public health nurses (SCPHN). They work in partnership with GPs and other healthcare professionals, social workers, children’s centre staff and various statutory and voluntary agencies to ensure that clients are supported to meet the challenges of effective parenting.

The service is delivered between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday from health centres, clinics and children’s centres. The team also does home visits.

How to access the service

Health visiting is a universal service for all families with children under five.

The health visiting service is provided to all families with children under five who live in, or are registered with a GP, in Greenwich.
