Bright Start Week

Evelina London is inviting parents to come and find out more about their children’s health by taking part in Bright Start Week (Monday 17- Friday 21 November).

Bright Start Week is a series of events in Lambeth and Southwark to help parents ensure their child gets the healthiest start to life. Parents will be able to find out about the importance of healthy living and emotional well-being by speaking to health visitors, midwives and other child health professionals.

The events are taking place from 11am-2pm every day next week at Lister Health Centre in Peckham, Gracefield Gardens Health Centre in Streatham, and Evelina London Children’s Hospital in Lambeth.

Parents can drop in to meet health visitors, school nurses, midwives, speech and language specialists, physiotherapists, children’s dental experts and many more staff.
