Health Visiting - Berkshire Health Foundation Trust

Health visitors are registered nurses and midwives with an additional community public health qualification. We offer support and practical advice on many aspects of child development as well as family health.

The Health Visiting Team works in partnership with children and families, as well as other professionals such as health, education, social care and voluntary organisations to provide health support which is tailored to individual needs. Our skill mix team comprises of staff nurses, registered nurses with training in maternal and child health, and nursery nurses who are qualified in child development and have relevant training in child-related issues such as sleep, behaviour issues and healthy eating.

We can provide locally designed health visiting services for all families with children under five in Bracknell, Wokingham, Reading and West Berkshire. We aim to help children get the best possible start in life.
