Health Visitors

Health Visitors are no longer based at the surgery. They can be contacted on the following Number: 0300 790 6836

Each health visitor is a registered nurse who has spent a further year training to help you and your family stay healthy. Each child up to the age of five has a named health visitor. To contact your health visitor please phone 0300 790 6836 - an answering machine service is available if no-one is in to take your call. Home visits are made according to family and individual need. The first visit to a newly born baby is made after discharge from the midwifery service and thereafter at your request. You are welcome to attend the child health clinic held at Highbridge Children’s Centre, Coronation Road, Highbridge every Tuesday between 1.00 and 3.00pm. No appointment is necessary. The health visitors offer a programme of developmental assessments to all children. They are also involved in community health programmes which include disease awareness campaigns, stopping smoking and parenting initiatives. Health visitors also work closely with other professionals involved with children and their families.
