About Children and Family Health Surrey
Children and Family Health Surrey provide Surrey-wide community health services for children and young people from 0 to 19 years of age (up to 25 years for young adults with additional needs) and their families and carers. It brings together physical and emotional health services designed around the needs of the children, young people and their families.
With integrated and holistic services, we have ambitious plans to offer improved access to, and more consistent levels of, family healthcare services across Surrey. Working within Children and Family Health Surrey, you will have the chance to get involved in designing and developing pathways and improving services. Innovations include introducing a shared health record for every child and a single phone number and team for referrals.

Here's what some of our nurses and carers say about their roles:
“I find the job extremely rewarding as the families are so appreciative of the help you give. The length of shifts and flexible shift pattern fits in with family life.” Nurse
“My job enables me to help and support children and families live as normal a life as possible whilst staying out of hospital. We focus on working with families to see them grow and develop together, to see confidence grow and children exceed other expectations of them. Our team is in its own family who are always there for one another whilst working in the community allows flexible working hours to support our home lives”. Nurse
“What I love about my job is the relationships you build with the parents and children I work with. When you receive a smile from a child or you laugh with them, you know they are happy to see you. You are giving the families time to be a family again. Time to relax a bit knowing someone else is focusing on the child with healthcare needs. The parents are able to shift their focus for the time you are with them, allowing them to spend more time with their partners, other children or on themselves.” Carer
