9-12 month reviews

When your child is between 9 and 12 months old you may be offered an appointment to attend your local clinic where your health professional (community nursery nurse or health visitor) will complete a review with you and your child. You may also receive an 'Ages and Stages' questionnaire in the post to complete and return which will be reviewed by a health professional.  If the results indicate that a further follow up is necessary we'll invite you and your child to an appointment.

The 9-12 month review is an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and development. Topics may include speech and communication, healthy eating, behaviour, sleep, immunisations and dental care.

Your health professional will also be able to support you with any concerns you may have for yourself and/or your family.

Our Health Visitor advice lines and Child health drop ins provide support for you and your family on all aspects of child health, development and parenting.  On these pages you will find all information and contact details.
