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. 

We offer daily child health clinics across the island. 

During Coronavirus, we 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.

We are now pleased to be able to offer normal services again.

We know it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured.

Remember, that health professionals, GPs and the Jersey General Hospital are still providing the same safe care that they have always done, while the situation with Coronavirus continues. Here is some advice to help
