    This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.

    • Mum in London

      I have known Ann for two years and she is a very good health visitor. Ann is very conscientious and always does her best to help every family. Ann will always be positive, look for ways to solve problems and will never give up once she has made up her mind to achieve something. She is a good listener with Mums and gives them lots of her time. Ann is jolly and energetic and I have no problems at all recommending her.

      The kallikids reputation
    • Sue, fellow Health Visitor, Orpington

      Ann is an absolutely brilliant health visitor. I have known her for two years and she really is supportive, nurturing and very hard working. She goes the extra mile and builds great relationships with families even in difficult circumstances. When she left our clinic, one of the families came in to say goodbye to her and say thank-you which relfects how much support she gives.

      The kallikids reputation
    • Sonia, Mum and fellow health visitor in London

      I’ve known Ann for 10-12 years and have no problem at all recommending her as she is a really good health visitor. She is professional, caring, reliable, trustworthy and she goes the extra mile. Ann cares so much about her families that I have seen her make time to make extra visits to a Mum with post-natal depression to support her. I can’t critcise Ann – she is really very good.
