Health Visitors

Contact number with answer phone: 01256 376558.

If you have recently registered at the surgery please contact the health visitors if you have children under the age of five.

Health Visitors are nurses who have had additional training in public health, child development and health promotion. They work with families, children and in communities to promote health. They are able to offer advice on health and development and many other health related issues. They organise health and development assessments at home or at the surgery.

Integrated Care

We meet regularly with our integrated care team of district nurses, social worker, frailty nurse, mental health nurse, physio and OT to discuss patients with complex needs so that the care offered is well coordinated and appropriate to their needs.

We aim to support patients in their own homes when possible and so prevent unnecessary or prolonged hospital admissions.
