Health Services

Universal health services, such as antenatal and postnatal support from midwives and health visitors, are available at Pen Green. Some groups are available to drop-in, others by appointment or referral only. We also offer specialist health and mental health support through our Groupwork Programme, SEND provision, and Family Support Team.

All health services are coordinated through our Adult Infant Drop-in, and are led by qualified practitioners.
