Healthy Families Team

This integrated service delivers the Healthy Child and Public Health Nursing Programme for children and young people 0-19. It brings together care provided by health visitors, school nurses, the family nurse partnership programme and the National Childhood Measurement Programme. The Family Health Team are always available for advice so can signpost you in the right direction. If your issue is a medical need rather than a health need, they may still recommend you to your GP.

All children in school know Childline as a point of contact for their concerns and worries, however for general day to day worries, they may prefer Kooth (especially older pupils). Kooth is a free, safe and anonymous online counselling and support service. They offer the opportunity to chat to counsellors, read articles written by young people with similar worries and join live moderated forums.
