Health Visitors

Health visitors are registered nurses or midwives with a specialist qualification in public health. They work with families who have children between the ages of 0 and five.

There are five key stages in your child’s development when you will be contacted by your health visitor:

  1. Before your baby is born (when you are around 30 weeks’ pregnant)
  2. New birth visit – between days eight and 14
  3. Six to eight week visit
  4. Seven to 11 month developmental review
  5. Two to two and a half years developmental review

Each health visiting team runs a child health clinic, which you can attend with your under five for advice, support and weighing. You do not need to make an appointment to attend the child health clinics, which are held in a variety of venues including GP practices and children’s centres.

Lewisham health visiting services are run by Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, whereas Greenwich and Bexley health visiting services are run by Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust
