Children and Family Health Surrey is the new, Surrey-wide NHS community health service for children and young people from birth up to 19 years of age (up to 25 for young adults with additional needs) and their parents and carers.
The new service has been designed around the needs of children, young people and their families and carers in Surrey. It focuses on the prevention of ill health, promoting and supporting child development and providing targeted and specialist medical, nursing and therapy services.
Children and Family Health Surrey includes health visiting, school nursing and school-age immunisation services as well as specialist paediatric, nursing and therapy services to support children and young people who have additional needs requiring on-going care.
Our health services are closely linked to Surrey’s mental health services, which will help improve the care and support families receive.
Families also benefit from closer links to wider health services, such as the therapies for school-age children provided by Surrey County Council.
Children and Family Health Surrey services are provided under one contract by three established NHS providers in Surrey: CSH Surrey, First Community Health and Care, and Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Trust. By working together as one service, Children and Family Health Surrey will ensure children and young people will at the centre of the care they receive as well as improve access to healthcare services across the county.
