Changes to the Healthy Child Service

In line with government advice, a few changes have been made to our Healthy Child Service offer.

You can still contact our service for advice and support from a School Nurse or Health Visitor at this difficult time. We're doing as much as we can over the phone and we'll still visit you if it is essential.

Please do not come to the centres, we will contact you by phone and visit only if it is essential and safe to do so. All Healthy Child Clinics and Nurture Breastfeeding Groups within Children’s Centres are postponed until further notice. The self-weigh facility is also temporarily withdrawn.

The team can support over the phone with:

  • behaviour
  • toileting
  • sleep
  • healthy eating
  • ideas for activities during isolation

York's Healthy Child Service (HCS) delivers information, advice and support for children and parents of children aged 0 to 19 years old.

The HCS incorporates York's Health Visiting Service and School Nurse Service. We work with families, young people and children to help them achieve the best possible start in life and reach their full potential.

We work across the city in teams covering the North, East and West of York.

You can find out more about the Healthy Child Service on the YorOK website.
