Health Visitor / Public Health Nurse
The role of the Health Visitor is varied. We deal with all pre-school children. Each local Primary School Nursery Department has a named Health Visitor attached to it. Blackfriars Health Visitor is the named H.V for Canongate PS Nursery. Our wider remit includes support for families and the community with a Public Health approach.
