Health Visiting

Health Visiting is part of the Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust’s 0-19 Service through which children and their families are supported at home, in community clinics and at school from birth to 19 years old.

Health visitors help to keep babies and children aged from 0-5 years old healthy, and work closely with Sheffield City Council to make sure that families are able to access the best local and national support.

Like all health visiting teams the service follows the national Healthy Child Programme which is a plan to help give children the best start in life.

This means that all new mums get home visits and regular catch ups with health visitors at local clinics held at GP surgeries, council buildings and health centres across Sheffield.

Your Health visiting team will invite you to a clinic appointment when they need to see you and your child. You can ask for an appointment outside of the schedule if you need to – please contact the team by ringing 0114 3053224.

You can find out more about what health visitors do by looking at the information page on the NHS website.

Health Visitor Clinics

Baby clinics are held across the city in a variety of venues where health visitors and community nursery nurses provide support for:

  • your child’s growth
  • development and behaviour
  • good sleeping habits
  • feeding your child – breast milk, formula, solids, healthy eating
  • coping with minor illnesses
  • managing a crying baby
  • immunisations
  • toileting
  • any other concerns you have about your child, yourself or your family

Health visitors have a wide range of knowledge about all aspects of parenting and supporting families. They also work closely with other health care providers and agencies and can help you access the right support through signposting and referrals to other services.
