Manchester’s Health Visiting teams work with families to get the best health and development outcomes for the children in the Early Years, from pregnancy to primary school entry. The service is delivered through home visits, contact in the community and telephone calls, as necessary. It is a non-emergency service providing health education, advice and guidance.
Health Visitors offer 5 key contacts to all families:
– antenatal health promoting review
– new baby review 10-14 days after birth
– 6 to 8 week review
– 9 month health and development review
– 2 year health and development review
