Health visiting teams work in the community to support children and families in Stoke-on-Trent. They 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.

Click here for information about children's service for Staffordshire residents.

In Stoke-on-Trent all families will receive the universal offer, which includes: 

  • Contact from your Health Visiting team at around 28 weeks of pregnancy.
  • 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 mother and baby review when your baby is 3-4 months old.
  • A 9–12 months old review.
  • 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.

Baby clinics in Stoke-on-Trent

At a baby clinic, families can discuss any health issues and have their child weighed and measured.

Remember: if you have a question about your baby, you can telephone your Health Visiting HUB on 0300 303 3298 or visit the clinic, without having your child weighed. Contact details are on the inside of your child’s ‘My personal child health record’ (red book).
