Health Visiting South Gloucestershire

The health visiting service in South Gloucestershire  is made up of health visitors and nursery nurses who work in the community with children and families from the antenatal period until they go to school. The service offers support for parents of all children (from pregnancy to age five), whatever their circumstances.

Health Visitors

Health Visitors are qualified nurses or midwives with a specialist qualification in public health for children, young people and families. They work alongside families offering support and information around parenthood and early parenting. Their training in public health enables them to provide evidence based support and information on a wide range of topics that can affect the health and wellbeing of families.


Community Nursery Nurses

Community nursery nurses also work alongside families using their knowledge of child development to help support parents to understand their child’s behavior, build a loving relationship with their child and enjoy their parenting journey.


When will I see a member of my Health Visiting Team?

Please see our health visiting leaflet (below) which has information about when you will see a health visitor or community nursery nurse.

You can call into any of the baby hubs across South Gloucestershire to meet other parents and chat to a member of the Health Visiting Team. Baby scales are also available at all of the baby hubs for you to use.  A list of the baby hub across the area is available on the Health Visiting page.
