Health visitors are qualified nurses or midwives with specialist public health training. We are trained in child health and development and protecting children. We advise and support the health and wellbeing of babies, children to the age of five and their families.
The main way to contact health visitors is now via a text service Chathealth Parentline on 07312263081
This is covered between 9-5pm week days excluding bank holidays, by our trained health visitors and staff nurses, where parents can get quick support and triaged appropriately.
Outside our normal office hours, please contact your GP via the 111 service for non-urgent support. For emergencies, please dial 999 or 112.
Our contact details for the individual teams can be found on our website: oxfordhealth.nhs.uk/hv/support/
