"Exceptional care from Health Visitor"

About: Children & younger people's services / Health visiting, Ashfield

(as a parent/guardian),

Exceptional care from Health Visitor. I was treated as an individual by her rather then a statistic, as a mother to a stillborn baby and now a mother to a premature baby I am very often put into a category, Julie never ever did that. I was / am always made to feel that I have someone I can turn to for support with any concerns I may have. She listens when nobody does and as a result my baby's progress is going from strength to strength. Julie's support for not only my baby but myself as been absolutely outstanding and as made a very difficult time more of a journey then a nightmare.

The only thing that could be improved are the phone lines and clinic communication
