Health visitor and 0 to 5 transfer programme: case studies

Examples of good practice in the transformed Health Visitor Programme, divided into the 6 high impact areas (HIAs).



These stories from health visitors and service users demonstrate the work and benefits of the transformed health visiting service. The service offers 4 levels of support depending on need, 5 universal reviews at key points in a child’s life and 6 high impact areas where health visitors make the biggest difference.

These examples are structured under the 6 high impact areas, which are:

  • transition to parenthood
  • maternal mental health
  • breastfeeding
  • healthy weight and nutrition
  • managing minor illness and preventing accidents
  • the 2 year review.

These are key development points in a child’s life.

To get in touch about good practice or innovation in health visiting, please contact the 0-5 Public Health Transfer Team.

Case studies and information on the Family Nurse Partnership (targeted service for first time mums under 19) are available here.
