The Health Visitor Implementation report published today, sets out progress on key areas of the Health Visitor Implementation programme, which began in February 2011.

The key aim of the programme is to improve services and health outcomes in the early years for children, families and local communities, through expanding and strengthening the health visiting service. Health visitors, working in partnership with GPs, midwives, school nurses, Sure Start Children’s Centres and other local organisations, have a crucial role in ensuring that all young children are able to get best possible start in life and are given the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

The Health Visitor Implementation progress report provides the latest summary of progress against the Government’s commitment. Summary progress reports will be published every quarter until 2015.
