Children in care

COVID-19 service update: running as normal via telephone and video calls where possible.


The Pan-Dorset Looked After Children (LAC)/Children in Care Health Team provides health support for all children and young people that are placed in the care of Dorset Council (DC) and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Council.

Our aim is to help children and young people with their physical and emotional health needs and to promote healthy lifestyle choices. We carry out yearly health assessments for children over the age of five and the Health Visiting team will complete the health assessment every six months for under 5s.

Every child in care has a CiC Nurse.

You can contact the team on 01305 361127 or at or click here for contact details of different team members.
