All children living in Sutton are invited to have a health and development review at:
2 – 2 1/2 year reviews
The first review at 10-14 days is done by a Health Visitor at home; this is sometimes referred to as a ‘new-birth visit’. The Health Visitor will contact you to arrange this visit when they have received information from the maternity department that your baby was born at.
At the first review you will be given a date for the Health Visitor to review your baby when they are 6 weeks old. This review will be offered at home or at your local Children’s Centre with a Health Visitor. This review is in addition to the appointment you will have to see your GP for an 8 week baby review and first immunisations.
When your child is 9 months old and 2 years old, you will receive a letter from the Health Child Programme Administration Team inviting you to ring up and book an appointment for your child to have a health and development review. You will also be sent an Ages and Stages questionnaire to complete at home and bring to your appointment. These reviews are done by either a Health Visitor or Community Nursery Nurse.
Although the Health Visiting service offers these reviews at these ages, developmental reviews can be requested if you have any concerns about your child’s development. You can also access the ‘drop in’ well child clinics if you are concerned about your child and if the Health Visitor feels a developmental review is required they will book you a 1-1 appointment with a member of your team.
To book a developmental review or to talk to a Health Visitor please contact the Healthy Child Programme Administration Team on 0208 661 3904.
