Drop-in sessions – Wigan Borough Health Visiting

Health Visiting Well Baby Clinics in WiganHealth Visiting Well Baby Clinics in Wiga n

We have an extensive number of Well Baby Clinics, in various venues, run by the Health Visiting Service across Wigan.

Each clinic has a named Health Visitor present, who is usually a nurse prescriber and is able to prescribe for some minor conditions.

The clinics are available for you to attend for advice, information and support regarding your child’s health, development and well-being.

We are also able to weigh and measure your baby/child and review their growth.

Our baby clinics are warm and friendly and offer a welcoming experience for families and children.

The clinics are available for you to drop-in and you do not need an appointment.

However we kindly ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes before the end of the session to ensure that we have sufficient time to offer you suitable support.
