Coronavirus (COVID-19): Information about our service
In response to COVID-19, the way we provide our service has changed but don’t worry; we are still here if you need us.
You can contact your local health visiting team via their duty line if you have any questions, or are worried about yourself or your child’s health and wellbeing. Details of how to contact local teams can be found on our Health Visiting Service page. Our health visiting service has put together some useful information for parents - please see our Kent Baby frequently asked questions including information on the support available to you. Please see our guidance on how we can video call using Skype, WhatsApp or AccuRX.
Keep up-to-date with the latest information, read our page on Coronavirus.
Once you have had your baby, our health visiting service will see you for a new birth visit from around day 10-14 and can offer you support right up until your baby grows up and starts school.
We have a duty health visitor who is available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm who can talk to you about any concerns you may have or support you to access the right service. You can find the contact details in your red book or contact your local team.
