Advice For Parents

Family Nursing and Home Care (FNHC) work closely with parents and carers in Jersey to help provide care and reassurance. We hope you find this section useful if you are looking for information about your baby or child and how we can help you.

Our expert health visitors are a key point of contact for mums and dads after the birth of their baby. 

Normally, we offer daily child health clinics across the island. 

However, due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus, we have created a Virtual Child Health Clinic to replace the health clinics which parents would normally visit, which are run by the Organisation’s Health Visitors, and provide advice and reassurance for parents in Jersey.

Now, parents and carers who would normally access the Child Health Clinics run across the Island, can instead call or email a health visitor for advice, despite the ongoing situation with Coronavirus.

During this period, you can call FNHC health visitors on telephone: 01534 443674 or email at Enquiries@fnhc.org.je

The times of the phone line for the Virtual Child Health Clinics are Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm. 

Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Remember that GPs and the Jersey General Hospital are still providing the same safe care that they have always done. Here is some advice to help

If your child is seriously unwell, you must take them to the Hospital’s Emergency Department or phone 999 in an emergency for an ambulance.

The out of hours GP can be contacted via the Hospital Switchboard on (01534) 442000
