Health visitor plan quarterly reports: 2013 to 2015

Quarterly reports on the Health Visitor Implementation Plan 2011 to 2015.



These reports have been written by the programme’s 4 key partners: Department of Health, NHS England, Health Education England (HEE) and Public Health England (PHE).

They cover the latest position on:

  • actual and projected health visitor workforce numbers and health visitors in training
  • service transformation, especially its links to commissioning levels, and the measurement of health visitors’ effect on the lives of families and children
  • working with the profession itself, development of skills and guidance based products
  • the programme’s communications activities
  • activities of the independent Health Visitor Taskforce
  • the work to transfer commissioning responsibilities for under 5s public health services to local authorities on 1 October 2015

They also set out the latest position on plans to ensure that local authorities are ready to take on public health commissioning for children under 5 years.
