Providers of NHS children's services

Working in partnership

We are NHS And Local Authority funded and work closely with our partners at Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust, University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust, Barnardo’s, Off The Record and Kooth to provide all the community child and adolescent health services across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

We have more 800 staff working across our Children’s Services including Community Paediatricians; Children’s Therapists; Health Visitors; School Health Nurses and Children’s Mental Health Teams. We also provide a range of more specialised children’s mental health services and services for children with disabilities.

Involving you is an important part of our service, and we are keen to involve children and young people, parent, carers and professionals to help us improve the services we offer.
