Health Visitors

The Health Visitor service is operated by Virgin Care, with clinics based at Oldfield Surgery.  They have a strong tradition of working with individuals, families and communities to promote health.

The focus of Health Visiting is often on parents and young children. Bringing up children can be fun and rewarding, but also hard work and often frustrating. The Health Visitors can offer support and information on many aspects of parenting. They offer clinic-based appointments as well as home visits.

Many things may affect your family's health, e.g. housing, transport, relationships, smoking, diet, alcohol, depression and domestic violence. If you would like to discuss any issues affecting your family's health, you can contact the Health Visitors on telephone number 01225 831694.
