Children's health promotion events

The Children’s Services Team are currently running health promotion sessions across the county to highlight all services offered by our 0-19 Service. These cover Breastfeeding, 0-5 Health Visiting and 5-19 School Nursing, which are all commissioned by Derbyshire County Council.

School Aged Immunisation is also included in the Child Health remit and is commissioned separately by NHS England.

The road show events have taken place in different settings across the county and have included a junior school, secondary school, Derbyshire County Council headquarters and a Tesco store in Chesterfield. This has enabled the team to interact with people of all ages to promote all our services. An unforeseen bonus has been the opportunity to talk to grandparents who are often care givers and influence family health.

The penultimate events are this week at Bakewell show on 3 and 4 August, within the breastfeeding tent and the final event is at Ashover show on 10 August.
