Healthy Child Programme

Haringey Health Visiting Service offers the Healthy Child Programme to all families living at a Haringey address. This means we will usually have five points of contact with you and your child. If you have concerns or would like to speak to a Health Visitor at any other time, please get in touch with us by phone or email (see details in ‘Contacts’ page).
 
See timeline below for what you should expect from us and other health services, until your child goes to primary school - click on each contact to find out more:
