The Health Visitors work in the community and are notified of the birth of all babies. They will then visit patients at home and offer advice on all aspects concerning immunisation and the development of children from birth to 5 years of age. Contact may be continued through further visiting at home. The Health Visitors may be contacted at Tonge Children’s Centre, Starkie Road, Bolton, BL2 2ED on 336745 or at Breightmet Health Centre on 463366.
