Have your say! Public consultation on Health Visiting and Family Nurse Partnership - live

Posted on: 20 July 2017

The Public Health Division is re-procuring the Tower Hamlets Health Visiting Service and Family Nurse Partnership (FNP). The new contract for delivery of these Public Health Services (0-5) will begin in April 2019.

The Health Visiting Service is a workforce of specialist community public health nurses who provide expert advice, support and interventions to families with children in the first five years of life. They aim to support and empower parents to make decisions that positively influence their family's future health and wellbeing.

FNP is an evidence-based, preventive public health home visiting programme for vulnerable first time young mothers aged 19 and under. Structured home visits, delivered by specially trained family nurses, are offered from early pregnancy until the child is two.
