Warwickshire parents invited to share views on pre-school health nursing service

Leamington Editorial 10th Jul, 2021   0

PARENTS are invited to share their views and experiences of Warwickshire’s Public Health Nursing Service.

The service supports parents from pregnancy to the time their child starts school. It typically involves five visits from the health team, from the antenatal period to when the child reaches two-and-a-half-years-old.

The 0 to 5 Public Health Nursing Service aims to build parents’ confidence, promote child development, and strengthen parent, infant and family health and wellbeing. It works with families with different levels of need, to get them the right help at the right time.

The council wants to hear feedback from parents who have used any element of the service to help review and shape the service.

Warwickshire County Council’s spokeswoman for health and social care Margaret Bell said: “We encourage as many parents and carers as possible to take part in the survey so we can understand their expectations and experience of the 0 to 5 Public Health Nursing Service, pre-Covid and during the pandemic, and what matters most to them.

“The opinions of parents and families are important in influencing the future of our local services, so we hope lots of people will take time to share information with us about the support they have received. We would also like to know how they would like the service to look and feel moving forward.”

A survey is available to complete at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/ask until September 15.
