"Children gained confidence at play sessions"

About: Chilwell Children's Centre

(as the patient),

Is the Wednesday 9. 30am-11. 30am play session still going to continue as you have now stopped the weigh in clinic? I have used the centre every week for the last year for three minded children. They have gained so much confidence and had so many lovely play experiences from these sessions that myself and the children would be very upset if this session stopped. You have already stopped the Tuesday Beeston Central morning play session for group training and we regularly attend the Friday morning session at Beeston North. This is also a weigh in clinic too, so is this session still going to be on?

Response from Tina Hancock, Sure Start Children's Centres Service Manager, Broxtowe District, Sure Start, Health Partnerships We have made a change

Hi Foxworth,

Thank you for taking the time to post your questions and queries on this forum regarding planned changes to the Health clinics across Broxtowe.

We have listened to the all the messages that we have received and we are pleased to announce that we will be continuing to deliver sessions where you can access a health professional for advice and guidance while enjoying play activities with your child.

We will be offering a range of options for all parents to access which includes – Self-Weigh sessions, One-to-One appointments and a new Healthy Family Drop-In Session. The Healthy Family Drop-in Session will provide a range of professional services designed around supporting families with young children. Our team of professionals will be able to support you with Child Development, Family Support and Health.

Details will be coming out shortly – further information will be available at your local Children’s Centre and on our Facebook page towards the end of October.

Thank you for your comments and we look forward to meeting you
