Health Visiting - Professional Support and Advice
For professional and policy enquries on health visiting contact: Obi Amadi, CPHVA Lead Professional Officer - Tel: 0207 780 4087
The future heralds a new emerging– and enhanced role for health visitors and community practitioners as part of the Government's healthcare agenda for the next decade. The new strategy for health visiting `Making a Difference` outlines the strengthened public health and multidisciplinary role for health visitors.
Devolution in the UK now means that each constituent country can devise its own healthcare policy. This has implications for health visiting and the CPHVA makes representations to ensure that the health visitor role is properly understood and valued.
