Gloucestershire County Council is running a consultation on some changes to public health nursing (including health visiting and school nursing) . It’s part of work being done in the Trust with the county council to bring together health visiting and school nursing into a single service for all children aged 0-19 and their families.

The council is asking parents-to-be, parents, guardians and young people in particular about what the proposals mean for them.

There are five topics in the survey:

Two year old development check –  helping more parents access the check

Baby hubs –  helping parents meet other parents and learn from professionals and each other

School nursung hubs –  bringing school nursing to more parents, children and young people in the county

One to one support – designing a consistent approach to common issues

Hearing screening – helping hearing problems to be identified earlier

The survey is open until Sunday 19 November and paper copies are available at libraries, GP surgeries and children’s centres.
