Health Visiting

The Health Visiting Community is a virtual network of individuals with an interest in this area of practice.

The purpose is to promote the practice of health visitors in improving the physical and mental health and wellbeing of families, children and young people by:

  • maintaining a body of expertise as a resource for the profession
  • providing peer support
  • continuing education
  • facilitating a dialogue between the Royal College of Nursing and  members for the purpose of consultation and working on pertinent child health issues of the day.

Our objectives:

  • To continue to actively maintain our community and its function
  • To promote a high standard of health visiting for children
  • To raise the profile of health visiting for children


To get involved please contact the community lead, Suzanne Watts
