0-19 years health service

Healthy Child Service

The 0-19 Service is made up of the Health Visiting Team who support children under the age of 5 and the School Nursing Team who support children aged 5-19. The 0-19 Service are a key provider of the Healthy Child Programme and work with families and other services to ensure children have the best start in life. In Enfield the 0-19 Service is delivered by North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust.

 

The Healthy Child Programme is a national framework aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of children, young people and families. For the early life stages it focuses on a universal preventative service, providing families with a programme of screening, immunisation, health and development reviews, supplemented by advice around health, wellbeing and parenting. For children and young people aged 5-19 the programme recommends a universal and progressive service that promotes health and wellbeing.

 

Health visitors and school nurses are public health nurses who support children, young people and families with making healthy choices such as healthy eating, physical activity and good oral health, making positive behaviour changes, undertaking reviews to ensure early identification of any needs that require additional support and keeping children safe.
