Information for families living in Staffordshire who access health visiting service. 

Health Visiting Staffordshire 

Health visiting teams work within the community to support local children and families. In Staffordshire health visiting teams provide the Healthy Child Programme for all families with children up to the age of five (5). The programme ensures a healthy start for children, (for example immunisation, health and development checks), support for parents and access to a range of resources.

In Staffordshire all families will receive the universal offer, which includes:

  • An antenatal visit at 28 weeks pregnant.
  • A new born visit 10–14 days after the baby is born.
  • A mother and baby review when your baby is 5-8 weeks old.
  • A visit when your baby is 9–12 months old.
  • A 2 year–2 and a half years review.

Some families may require more support. Your health visitor will help identify the level of support which your family requires and if needed, will talk you through additional offers of support available to you.

For more information please read: ‘The Health Child Programme: A Parent’s Guide’ Staffordshire Programme.
