What is this about?

Northamptonshire County Council is responsible for making sure that all children (aged 0-19) are safe, as healthy as they can, and that any health or development problems are identified as early as possible and the right treatment and care offered.

This includes offering every pregnant mother wellbeing assessments during the third trimester of pregnancy and after the birth of a child, providing support for breast feeding, health assessments and development checks at key points in every child’s life, and advice support and information to help all families support their children to grow up happy, healthy and achieving their full potential.

This service is currently delivered by the 0-19 Public Health Nursing Service, which is made up of Health Visitors and School Nurses (these are registered nurses who have additional public health qualifications depending on whether they work with families and young children 0-4 or with young people aged 5-19), specialist breast feeding nurses and nurses who have been specially trained to deliver support to teenage parents. The nursing teams are supported by nursery nurses and other support staff and liaise closely with family doctors, hospital A and E departments, Children’s Centres and social care staff.

We want to make access to this service as easy as possible for parents and their children.

How can I help?

Please could you take about 5-10 minutes to tell us your views by completing this short questionnaire. (Please note this questionnaire is aimed at parents of children under 25 years old, if you are a young person who uses these services please contact us using the contact details below for a paper copy of the young persons questionnaire or you can complete it online here.)

Your feedback will be used to help us have a better understanding of people’s views on the services we provide and will help us shape the future of these services. Your feedback will be part of a report with many other people’s feedback, so you will not be personally identified.

You do not have to answer all of the questions. If you don’t want to answer a question, or don’t know the answer, then move on to the next question.
