Acute liaison nurse

The acute liaison nurse can support patients with a learning disability and their carers to access hospital based health services. This could include making reasonable adjustments to appointments or in-patient stays. Support can be offered to parents and patients in transition from children’s health services to adult health services. An individual service is based on the needs of the patient and their carer.

Specialist Nursing

Health visiting

Health visitors support all families with children who are pre-school, from pregnancy to starting school. The health visiting teams are based in children’s centres or NHS health clinics and they include health visitors, a staff nurse and child development workers.

The health visiting team helps children and families to stay healthy and avoid illness. They work alongside GPs, midwives and other health and social care professionals, the voluntary sector and with families and communities to help parents to prepare for birth and adapt to the time ahead. Health visitors provide parenting support, enabling parents/carers to provide sensitive and effective parenting during the first months and years of life. They may see you at home, in health settings (including GP surgeries), and children’s centres. You can talk to your health visitor about any concern you may have about your pre-school child.
