About Wiltshire Children’s Community Services
Virgin Care provide Wiltshire Children’s Community Services across the county. They provide a wide range of children and young people’s services which look after the physical, medical and mental health and wellbeing of children and young people up to the age of 19 years old.
They have been providing care and support to children, families and carers in Wiltshire since April 2016, when we brought services together from five providers to create a Wiltshire-focused children’s services team.
They provide everything from public health nursing (also known as health visiting and school nursing), to specialist support for children and young people with physical sensory or learning needs and disabilities.
Wiltshire Council, NHS England and NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group – who buy NHS care on behalf of the population in Wiltshire – tasked them with bringing the services from five providers into one, increasing the voice of children and families in the service and providing a joined-up service where families only need tell their story once and where families, no matter where they live, have access to the same services.
They deliver services in the community, in families’ homes, schools and children’s centres and all of the services will aim to see patients as soon as possible. In most cases, you’ll need to be referred to them by your GP, midwife or another health or education professional.
