Your knowledge and understanding of the Healthy Child Programme and related policies and pathways, including identifying risks, will enable you to assess, plan and deliver care and evidenced based interventions to support children, young people and families within Barnsley. You will need to be able to plan and prioritise your own workload and the ability to travel to a range of venues and settings is essential.
