Health Visiting & School Nursing Thematic Review

 The commissioning of Health Visiting came under the responsibility of local authorities in 2015, aligning to the existing responsibility for School Nursing services. London Directors of Public Health have agreed to a thematic review of local authority responsibilities for these services as part of their Sector Led Improvement programme.

These services play a crucial role in giving every child the best start in life. As no self-assessment and peer review tool currently exists for Health Visiting and School Nursing services, a bespoke tool has been developed by ADPH London, working with London Councils and the Institute of Health Visiting and IPIP (Improving Performance in Practice).
