About us

Newham is an incredibly diverse borough with a very young population and is experiencing considerable regeneration as part of the Olympic legacy. There are over 86,000 children and young people in Newham and we want each of them to have the same life chances as young people in other parts of London.

This post is directly employed by the London Borough of Newham, who was the first London borough to offer a fully integrated 0-19 health and social care service after we assumed direct responsibility for providing School Nursing services, Health Visiting and Family Nurse Partnership in 2017. Therefore our Brighter Futures directorate will be delivering the 0-19 Healthy Child Programme refreshed in 2021, through the Childrens Health Service.

We have had a stable and permanent senior management team in the Childrens Health Service and are now recruiting to our Integrated Team Managers role within our Specialist and universal health Visiting Teams.

The Children's Health 0-19 service had their CQC Inspection review in 2021 and rated Good in all areas.
