"Excellent health visiting team!"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC / Health visiting

(as a parent/guardian),

After the recent birth of my daughter I required help and support of the local health visitors.

My daughter was born and had many health complications. She had been in and out of hospital 4 times in the first 4 weeks of her life. After these visits and still no improvement it has been the support of Suzi Kilroy and Annalese (health visitors) that has helped me get through a difficult 4-5 weeks. They have been supportive, empathetic, excellent communication and quick to respond when I needed support and help.

Annaliesa made additional referrals for us at the Gp and even arranged for a 10 min one to one session for baby massage to help my daughters health complications. Excellent support given to my daughter and to myself where some health professionals have failed to recognise that support and help was needed.

Thanks to both Suzi, Annaliesa and the student health visitor who gave me that comforting touch when needed! A fantastic team of health visitors!
