What we do

The 0-19 Service is delivered by health visiting, school nursing and infant feeding teams.

The 0-19 service is offered to children aged 0-5 who live in Luton, and children aged 5-19 who attend a Luton school, college, or alternative education provider, as well as to their parents/guardians/carers. There is an open access referral system in place which includes self referrals.

The vision of the 0-19 Service is that all children will reach their full potential. We aim to contribute to this through delivery of the Healthy Child Programme in partnership with other agencies including children’s centres.

The service is provided in a variety of settings including:

  • Client’s homes
  • Children’s centres
  • Schools
  • Clinics
  • Community health services

The Healthy Child Programme is an early intervention and prevention public health programme which consists of interventions such as screening, health and development reviews, health promotion,  and advice to children, young people and their parents/guardians or carers.

The programme includes:

  • Antenatal contacts
  • New birth visits
  • 1 year development assessments
  • 2 year development assessment
  • National Child Measurement Programme
  • Universal health promotion
  • Advice, signposting and referrals to other agencies
  • Progressive packages of care
