Watch our new film about health visiting support for Surrey families 

A new film is launched today by Children and Family Health Surrey about health visiting support available for families during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The health visiting team supports families with babies and children up to the age of five through face to face as well as virtual appointments, virtual workshops and support groups, a telephone advice line (01883 340 922, available from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays) and website resources.

Watch the film on the Children and Family Health Surrey You Tube channel.

Emily talks about her own experiences and how health visitors helped her when her children were younger, as well as asking Jo about what support is available now for families. 

Jo talks about how Children and Family Health Surrey supports mums, dads and carers including face to face and virtual appointments, what the health visiting team do and some of the most common questions they are asked.

Children and Family Health Surrey is the Surrey-wide NHS community health service for children and young people from birth up to 19 years of age and their parents and carers.

Advice Line: Families with children from birth to 19 years old can call the Surrey-wide 0-19 Advice Line on: 01883 340 922. The advice line is available from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays) and provides support on all aspects of child health, development and parenting.

Face to face child health drop-in sessions and in person breastfeeding support groups will restart once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
