    Blackburn with Darwen 0-19 Universal Services

    A brief update on the delivery of our service during the COVID-19 pandemic

    Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust 0-19 Universal Services will continue to provide care and support to the children and young people within Blackburn with Darwen. To stay in line with the current Government guidelines, our services will be carried out a little differently to normal.

    Health Visiting 0-5 years

    Our service currently remains open Monday-Friday, 9 - 5 pm. You can contact a Health Visitor for advice on 01254 585000.

    Feed & Chat Support Group

    Birth to Five book

    Introduction to solid foods

    The majority of our contacts will be by telephone and/or video call. Following this, we will assess if a home visit is needed in order to reduce non-essential contact.

    At this time, we are not able to safely deliver Family Health Clinics, therefore we would encourage you to contact our service on the number above for any support or advice you need.

    Although our School Health team is not currently working in schools, they are still available on 01254 585000 if you require any support or advice.
