Feedback on the Lewisham Health Visiting Service - Professionals working with the Health Visiting Service

Closed 14 Mar 2022

Opened 2 Feb 2022


Lewisham Council’s Children and Young People’s Commissioning Team are in the process of re-commissioning a range of services supporting the health and wellbeing of children and young people aged 0-19 years old. This consists of two services; the Health Visiting and School Health Service.

The ultimate aim of these services is to promote the positive health, wellbeing and development of children and young people. We want to ensure that children and young people have the best start in life and are protected from harm, have good physical and emotional health, and are enabled to develop, achieve and be ready for school.

The Health Visiting Service is run by Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, and supports the health and wellbeing of children aged 0-5 years and their families. The service provides screening, information, advice and support for parents across all areas of early health and development, including breastfeeding, healthy lifestyles, immunisations, parental mental health, communication and language development, and getting ready for school.


Why your views matter

We are really keen to hear views from parents, carers, young people and professionals about how these services are currently working, any gaps or issues we should be addressing and what our priorities should be for the design of the new service. This knowledge will help us to design and deliver these services over the next 2-5 years.

This survey is professionals (anyone who works with 0-5 year olds but not in the Health Visiting Service).
