A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
We work closely with the district nurses and also have access to the Elderly Care Team and Community Psychiatric Team. We also have a phlebotomist who holds clinics in the surgery. Patients can contact the surgery with any enquiries regarding outside agencies.
