The Health Visitor's work involves all age groups, especially working with ante-natal clients and families with babies and young children. Their work includes supporting new mothers and encouraging parents to have their children immunised. They assess health and development as well as screening for post-natal depression and advising on child behaviour, sleep, speech, toilet training, minor ailments and nutrition. As part of the Health Care team, their role is to promote good health and prevent illness.
