A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
Counselling is a way of helping people who have personal problems to find their own way through their difficulties. The practice has a very experienced counsellor and a Primary care mental health worker available. Referrals must be made by your doctor. There is a small fee contribution to our subsidised counselling service. However, patients who cannot afford to pay can be subsidised by SOS, our patient group.
