Child Health Clinics

What are they?

Updated September 2022
Our child health clinics are now a mixture of drop in and appointment only.
They continue to be run from community settings across the Borough of Islington.
Where they indicate they are a drop in facility, no appointment is necessary, but where it states appointment only you must not attend without a booked appointment.
You can make an appointment by calling your Health Visitor team directly – the number should be in your red book or listed below.
If you do not have a number to call you may call 0203 316 8008 and the team will help you identify the HV team number.
