Starting Well currently offer a number of appointment only ‘Open Advice Clinics’ throughout Cheshire West and Chester within local community venues providing a warm and friendly experience to both families and children.

The sessions are run by our team of Health Visitors. The sessions will have a named Health Visitor present, who is usually a Nurse Prescriber, and who is able to prescribe for some minor conditions.

We welcome you to attend the sessions for advice, support and information regarding the health, wellbeing and development of your baby or child. We are also able to weigh and measure your baby or child and review their growth. You can also contact a Health Visitor between anytime 9:00 and 5:00pm Monday to Friday via the duty desk.
