Changes to health visiting and school nurse services in Cheshire - from October 2017

East Cheshire NHS Trust previously provided health visiting services in the Northwich and Winsford areas of Cheshire.

However, with effect from October 2017 another trusted local NHS healthcare provider, Cheshire and Wirral Partnership (CWP) NHS Foundation Trust, took over these services. This is due to a new contract which has been awarded to CWP by Cheshire West and Chester Council - the local authority which now commissions health visiting services.  

While this will mean that health visitors previously employed by the East Cheshire were transferred to CWP, there was no disruption to the services local families receive. Both organisations worked closely together to ensure a smooth and seamless transfer, both for the employees involved and for the families they serve.

Parents and carers may also receive information directly regarding new contact details for your local health visitors.
