Bright Start Health Visiting Services Islington

COVID UPDATE : 5th January 2021
 
Bright Start Islington is the name for Islington services for all families with children under 5 years of age. The health visiting teams, as part of the wider Bright Start services, offer specific advice and support focusing on both the emotional and physical well being of all family members. Our wide range of services, including antenatal services, are delivered from both children centres and health centres.

We are very happy to see you face to face in your own home as well as in clinical settings and have started to reopen our child health clinics slowly.

We are also working with our partners to reopen the groups we run together face to face.

We hope that you have the contact details of your health visiting team in your red book but if not we do have a duty line for immediate access to the service (020 3316 8008).

There are lots of ways to get engaged and so click on the links below to get started or click on the side tabs for more information on how to access the service.
 
Did you know that many common childhood illnesses can be safely treated at home with advice from a pharmacist, your Health Visitor or GP team?
 
Hospital A&Es are always there to help with serious illness or injury, and life threatening emergencies - but if itís not an emergency, there are better ways to get help safely.
 
This year from late summer, you may hear more about a viral infection called bronchiolitis or RSV. This is a very common viral infection in children that circulates most years. Most cases of bronchiolitis are not serious, but there is more information in this leaflet.
 
We have a regular bulletin which provides an activity to do at home or outside with your child, top tips and contact details for services.
