The 0-19 team work as part of wider community teams with GP, midwives, Children’s Centres, Paediatricians, Speech Therapists, Nurseries, Schools, Sexual Health Services to provide care and support to promote children’s’ well-being and prevention of harm.

Our 0-5 team offer home visits to all families in the community of South Tyneside, from pregnancy through to school entry, as recommended by the national Child Health Promotion Programme. If you’re a parent, the team will support you with your own health needs and will help you develop a healthy lifestyle. They also provide ‘drop in’ baby clinics and tailor support to your child’s individual and family needs. Every child has a named health visitor until they reach school entry.

Our 5-19 team works with schools to plan and deliver health promotion sessions and events, regarding lifestyle issues. School staff are also offered training around chronic disease management. The team also carry out health assessments and screenings, advice and support for both children and parents/carers on health issues such as growth and development, healthy eating, weight management, behaviour issues, sexual health, smoking and mental health.
