Supporting partnership working for delivery of Healthy Child Programme

This news article was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

A range of documents designed to support partnership working for those who deliver the Health Child Programme 0-19 years old (HCP) are published.

The documents including guidance, health visiting attributes, health visiting factsheets and questions and answers aim to strengthen consistant seamless support for care for families.

They are aimed at the NHS, as part of the desire to improve service delivery and to support enhanced inter professional working.

There is no new policy in the Healthy Child Programme documents but instead they build on existing guidance such as HCP, NICE guidance and professional bodies standards including best practice from the service.
