Health visiting service

If you live in the borough of Enfield, our health visiting service is here to support you and your child as they begin to grow. Our health visiting teams work with mothers, fathers and their families to promote the health and wellbeing of children from pregnancy until their 5th birthday.

Health visitors are nurses or midwives who have undertaken additional training in community public health nursing. Other members of the team include community staff nurses, early years’ practitioner (nursery nurses) and health visiting assistants. We also work closely with children’s centres, children’s services and other healthcare professionals, as well as your general practitioner (GP).

In Enfield there are 4 health visiting teams:

They are based geographically, and so depending on where you live, will decide which health visiting team will be supporting you and your family.

What we do

Our role is to assess your health needs in partnership with you. We will plan and provide services which support you and your wider family as required. We can offer you and your family support before your baby arrives, in the early weeks following birth and as your child grows. We will also contact you when you move into the area from other parts of the country or from abroad.

We will work alongside you and your family with any parenting issues and guide you to find local services and groups that can also support you as a parent.
