Due to COVID-19 our Health Visiting service delivery has changed.
We continue to offer the Healthy Child Programme contacts: Antenatal, New Birth, 6-8 week, 9-12 month and 2 year review for all eligible families in Swindon. We are completing these contacts via virtual methods where possible. We also continue to support vulnerable families and those with developmental concerns.
It is now known that the indirect impact of COVID-19 has been significant for pregnant women, children, young people and families. There have been increases in safeguarding concerns, domestic abuse, child and maternal mental health problems as well as lost learning time for all children, impacting on outcomes for safety and wellbeing.
If you are a professional and would like to make a referral to Health Visiting service see request for service form below or to speak directly to a Health Visitor please contact our 0-19 Duty team on 01793 465452. This is NOT an emergency number.
Our Child health hubs remain closed at this time.
