Have your say on health visiting and school and college nursing services
Parents of young people in Oxfordshire, and healthcare professionals, are being asked for their views on health visiting and school and college nursing services in Oxfordshire.
A new survey looks to find out what parents think of the services they have used, their thoughts on what is the most important support and how the council can make health services easier to access.
The healthy child programme, which is funded by Oxfordshire County Council’s public health team, offers a range of services, such as advice, developmental reviews and drop-in clinics to support the health and wellbeing of children, young people and their families.
Specialist public health nurses help to deliver the programme, with health visitors leading the zero to five years service and school nurses leading the five -19 years service.
Councillor Mark Lygo, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Equalities, said: “We are keen to hear the views of parents of young people and health professionals who have experiences of health visiting and school and college nursing services in the county. We hope by getting your views we can shape the services to better suit the needs of our residents going forward.”
The survey goes live on 7 September, and residents have until 30 September to take part by visiting Let’s talk Oxfordshire, the county council’s digital engagement and consultation platform.
