Our Health Visitor is Fran Griffin and she is available on Worthing 01903 843802.
Health Visitors improve public health by working with individuals, families and communities. The main focus of their work with our patients is families with children from birth to 5 years. They also assist with smoking cessation and health promotion. They are also happy to arrange appointments with parents of school age children.
The Health Visitors offer individual or family appointments at the Surgery, home or a community location according to the wishes and needs of the patients.
We work very closely with our Health Visiting Team to ensure the safety and welfare of all children registered at our practice. We meet with them on a monthly basis and Debbie Elcome, our Administrator leads on safeguarding and child protection in close liaison with the Health Visiting Team and our GP Clinical Lead, Dr Catherine Joslin. If you would like to contact Debbie if you have any concerns, please contact here on firstname.lastname@example.org.
