ParentLine Text Messaging Service

We would like let you know that the ParentLine text messaging service for Parents and carers of 0-5 years olds to get confidential advice and support from the health visiting team is live. Parents and carers of babies and children under 5 across the pan Dorset area can now send a text message to Health Visitors for confidential advice on various subjects such as feeding, child development, toileting, sleep, behaviour, parenting, child health and more.

ParentLine is part of ChatHealth which is an award-winning messaging service already used by our School Nursing teams that is now available to parents and carers in Dorset.

How it works:

  • A text message can be sent to the ParentLine number – 07312 277162
  • An automated reply confirms the message has been received. A trained healthcare professional from the Health Visiting team will reply to the message during office hours 9-5 Monday to Friday (Excluding weekends and bank holidays) within 24 working hours at most
  • Please note that this is not an emergency service – urgent help should be sought from an NHS walk-in centre or call NHS 111, or in an emergency, dial 999 or go to A&E.

Patient Participation Group

  • This is called a virtual PPG because we never have meetings! Members communicate by email. In that way they can keep up to date with news from the Purbeck Network and indeed the NHS as well as share ideas and questions
