Health Visiting Service - Dorset Healthcare NHS

Our health visiting teams work with families, early years and other health colleagues and agencies to support the health and well-being of pre-school children across Dorset, visiting children and families in their home or in community settings. We also provide a digital offer which enables video calling options using the Attend Anywhere platform.

The service provides information, advice and support to pregnant women, expectant fathers and parents/carers of new babies and young children. This advice includes antenatal support, physical and emotional wellbeing of children, the immunisation schedule, parenting support, health and developmental reviews.
