HV / FNP Programme key dates
2011
• Health Visitor Implementation Plan 2011-15: 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.
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.
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.
Healthy Child Programme
An universal schedule of
evidence based assessments,
screening, immunisations and
contacts aimed at promoting
and protecting the health and
wellbeing of all children as well
as identifying needs early and
taking appropriate additional
action.
