Wiltshire Children’s Community Services

We provide children and young people’s community health services on behalf of Wiltshire Council and NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

Virgin Care provide Wiltshire Children’s Community Services across the county. We 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.

We’ve 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.

We 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.

NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group

Wiltshire Council, NHS England and NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group – who buy NHS care on behalf of the population in Wiltshire – tasked us 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.
