The service provides a universal, targeted and specialist health service to children, 0 - 19 years, and their families, focusing on early intervention, prevention and health promotion.
Health Visitors also work in partnership with Sure Start Children Centres, GPs, Midwives and other agencies to ensure that children and families have the right service, in the right place, at the right time and by the right person.
