Our Children's Centre has regular Health Visitor Clinics where parents can attend to monitor their child's health. Children will be weighed and monitored and parents can ask advice on many subjects including sleep, feeding and weaning.
At the ages of around 1 year and 2 years parents will receive a letter inviting them to a development check with their health visitor. These clinics are run on an appointment basis only.
Our NHS Health Trainers are here to offer support for healthy eating, exercise, quitting smoking, alcohol or drug issues, stress, emotional wellbeing and more.
Healthy Start Vitamins
Children’s Centres are again able to distribute Healthy Start Vitamins. Forms are available at reception which must then be signed by a health professional who sees the family regularly, such as the Health Visitor. Vitamins can then be dispensed by our centre receptionists.
