During our recent 'weeks' under the hashtag #healthvisiting we've been show-casing some of the excellent work being done by health visitors across the country as part professional practice and leadership to transform services. I'm delighted to say that we have now also published a series of case study documents, structured under the 6 high impact areas, which include stories from health visitors and service-users demonstrating the work and benefits of the transformed health visiting service. You can access the case studies at this LINK and we hope you are able to draw upon them to help shape, inspire or compare your own services.
The 6 high impact areas are:
- transition to parenthood
- maternal mental health
- healthy weight and nutrition
- managing minor illness and preventing accidents
- the two year review
