Children and Family Health Surrey has been awarded funding from Surrey Heartlands to run a two year Gypsy, Roma and Traveller health outreach programme from April 2019.
The service is provided by a specialist team of healthcare professionals consisting of a district nurse, health visitor and a school nursery nurse who outreach to local Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities providing care and support on a range of health issues.
They offer help and advice on a range of topics including:
- Face to face advice
- Health concerns
- A&E or GP
- Healthy eating
- Blood pressure
- Weighing babies
The specialist Gypsy, Roma and Traveller health team also provides training to other healthcare staff so they too can support Traveller communities.
You can contact the team through the 0-19 Advice Line
