Details

Local authority commissioners and health professionals can use these resources to track how many pregnant women, children and families in their local area have received health promoting reviews at particular points during pregnancy and childhood. The data and commentaries also show variation at a local, regional and national level. This can help with planning, commissioning and improving local services.

The metrics cover health reviews for pregnant women, children and their families at several stages:

  • antenatal contact
  • new birth visit
  • 6 to 8 week review
  • 12 month review
  • 2 to 2 and a half year review

Public Health England (PHE) collects the data, which is submitted by local authorities on a voluntary basis.

Find guidance on the technical detail to submit aggregate data to the central system for local authority analysts.

See health visitor service delivery metrics in the child and maternal health statistics collection to access data for previous years.

Find guidance on using these statistics and other intelligence resources to help you make decisions about the planning and provision of child and maternal health services.
