Update January 2021:  Due to the COVID- 19 pandemic we are delivering our health visiting services slightly differently at the moment. Where possible, we are very happy to see you face to face in your own home as well as in our COVID secure clinical settings.
 
We also have contact numbers and email addresses in each team where you can speak to a health visitor on the same day Monday - Friday 9am-5pm. Please check the available locations below.

Baby, child and breastfeeding support
At this time, we are offering appointment only clinics to have your baby weighed, but only if you have a specific concern or query about your baby or child.  Our visits, support and developmental reviews may be in person or be offered virtually via video or audio instead. Breast feeding support is also available face to face and/or virtually.
 
Health visitors are nurses or midwives who hold post-graduate specialist practitioner qualifications and work in the field of child family and public health. They work in the community, as autonomous practitioners, both designing and delivering care for families and communities.

They ensure all families have access to a universal set of evidence-based services as part of the healthy child programme to help them stay healthy. They use their expert professional judgement to agree appropriate levels of support over and above this universal service, building on parentsí strengths. Some of this support is provided by health visitors directly, some they delegate or refer to the appropriate professional or practitioner.
 
Specialist Immunisation Service (Haringey)
This service is for babies and children  who require specialist immunisations such as hepatitis B and TB, or who require immunisations given by a specialist practitioner due to severe allergies. The service is run in Haringey from both St Annís and The Laurelís clinic.
