Welcome to the Health Visiting and School Nursing services for Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Our Health Visitors and School Nurses are qualified nurses or midwives who have completed extra training, including child development and health improvement, to become Specialist Community Public Health Nurses.

Our Health Visiting and School Nursing teams are here to support parents, carers and young people to be healthy. We provide advice and support right through from pregnancy up until a child is 19. All families will be offered a number of routine contacts, plus extra visits where needed. 

You can find lots of useful information and how to contact us here. Please see the links below for more details on the services provided in your area.

Coronavirus Information. Please note that all well baby clinic, groups and drop-ins are currently closed. Your local HUB is available for advice and support - contact details below

We know that this is a worrying time and it will definitely not be how you had planned your parenting journey. You may have concerns in relation to your pregnancy or your children. Our teams are still here and able to support you and your family.  How we provide care has changed in 2020.  In this animation, which our colleagues at Leeds Community Healthcare have developed, we will share with you what you can expect during a home visit.

In addition, we have harnessed technology and can now offer some virtual consultations as well as telephone support.  Contact your local hub for support and advice or take a look through our website for answers to some common parenting issues.

We've included some links and resources from trusted organisations and websites to support you during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The iHV is dedicated to supporting the health and wellbeing of all families - take a look at their information 'Parenting through Coronavirus (COVID-19)'

The Lullaby Trust and Public Health England have teamed up to produce a short animation to help families who are caring for a baby during the pandemic:

Hand washing and good hygiene is even more important at this time - take a look at the video, a quick catchy tune to help your child remember the steps to a good hand washing technique.
