Gloucestershire’s Health Visiting Team, part of Gloucestershire Care Services, has produced a short film to raise awareness of the services they offer in the local community. The film has been produced with the help of local mums and dads and their children.
The Health Visiting service works within the community to promote health and wellbeing and prevent illness. They work mainly with pregnant women and fathers and preschool children and families. They’ve produced a short film to help raise awareness of the work they do, which you can watch here.
Health Visiting Teams are equipped with the latest health research and Department of Health guidance, so their advice is always based on up to date evidence. They come from a wide range of backgrounds, and have a broad knowledge of community needs and the resources available in their area.
They aim to create a friendly and welcoming environment in which parents can ask questions, access support and find local facilities. They can provide advice on a wide range of topics, or refer you to other specialists if needed. Topics include infant feeding, child development, preparing for parenthood, domestic abuse, safety, dental health, sleep, diet and exercise, and much more.
