January can be a difficulty month without the current concerns around lockdown and Covid 19. You may feel isolated from family and friends, be worried about your health, your children’s health or just life in general.

Your local health visitors and school nurses are here to offer you any support you may need around feeling low, anxious or depressed. We are still visiting you and your family at home during this time. You can contact us on:

Health Visitors: 0191 2831508
