4 HV / FNP Programme key dates
2011 Health Visitor Implementation Plan : A Call to Action launched Strategic Health Authorities worked with Primary Care Trusts to identify how many Health Visitors would be needed in localities to meet identified population needs. Business cases and Investment profiles agreed. 2013 Public Health transferred to the Local Authority in 2013, however the commissioning of Health Visiting & FNP Services moved to NHS England for a period of two years to complete the investment and transformation programme. 2015 Commissioning responsibility for Health Visiting and Family Nurse Partnership services will transfer from NHS England to Local Authorities on 1st October to complete the transfer of public health functions.

5 Why the focus on Health Visiting?
Public Health - The foundations for virtually every aspect of human development – physical, intellectual and emotional – are set in place during pregnancy and in early childhood. Economic - Successive academic and economic reviews have demonstrated the economic and social value of prevention and early intervention programmes in pregnancy and the early years. Competency - Health Visitors, specialist community public health nurses, have a unique role in identifying need and supporting the development and wellbeing of every child in England up to the age of 5. 80% of brain development takes place during pregnancy and in the first 2 years of life setting the neurological pathways for adult life – what happens during this period is crucial and a key determinant of intellectual, social and emotional health and wellbeing. What happens during these early years has lifelong effects on many aspects of health and wellbeing, educational achievement and economic status.

6 The Health Visiting Service…
provides expert information, advice, guidance and interventions to help parents become the best parent they can be and give their children the best start in life. has a central role in improving the health outcomes of populations, reducing inequalities, protecting children from harm and identifying additional needs at the earliest opportunity. leads the delivery of the national Healthy Child Programme 0-5 for every child is the only service that comprehensively assesses the health, wellbeing and social needs of every child at crucial stages of their development between pregnancy and the age of 3, often in the home environment.

7 Healthy Child Programme
