Health visiting service: contact at 2 years

When your child is between 2 and 2½ years, a member of our team will send you a questionnaire to complete and an appointment to visit you at home.

This will help you to think about the stage your child is at and what you can do to help their development.

If your child attends any early years setting (including nursery, preschool, or child-minder) the information from the review will be shared with the setting.

This will help us to have a good understanding of your child’s health and development and consider any support that may be helpful.

If you have any concerns about your child’s progress, or if your child has any specific health or development needs, a member of our team can offer further assessment and advice.

Advice for parents

What you can expect from the health visiting service

Health visitors provide on-going support and play a key role in bringing together relevant local services to help families with continuing complex needs, for example where a child has a long-term condition.

Families with issues such as safeguarding of children, looked after children and domestic abuse will be supported under universal partnership plus. These families will also receive the same core assessments and extra support as all universal families. Please contact your health visitor for further information.
