Health Services for children

If you’re worried about your child’s physical or mental health, you can get advice and support by speaking to your health visiting team. You can also contact the school health service, a GP or an education setting.

Advice from your health visiting team

You can contact your health visitor for support and advice until your child starts school. This can include advice about sleep, toileting and help to access other services to meet your family’s needs.
