Healthy child programme

The Healthy Child Programme is the evidenced based universal programme for children aged 0 to 19 years. It identifies the interventions and services that children and families need to receive to help achieve their best health and wellbeing outcomes including screening tests, immunisations, developmental reviews, and information and guidance to support parenting and healthy choices. The council is responsible for commissioning the appropriate services to deliver these interventions. Our aged 0 to 5 years services are delivered by Birmingham Forward Steps which is a partnership of organisations providing Health Visiting and Children Centre Services.

Our aged 5 to 19 years services are delivered by Birmingham School Health Support Service: Birmingham Community Healthcare. They can give confidential advice, care and support to schools, children, young people and their parents. They are there to protect and promote the physical and emotional health of children and young people, to ensure that they get the most from their education.
