The #iHVForum is a Twitter chat group developed by a group of Fellows of the Institute aimed at promoting debate and discussion as our commissioning moved from NHS England to Local Government in October 2015.
What are the challenges and opportunities that follow from this change?
At a time of cuts in local government finance how safe are the universal and targeted services delivered by health visitors going forward?
How should the profession prepare for the future and what outcome measures can we develop to demonstrate the value of the service to the broader children and families’ well-being agenda?
We are keen to invite local authority commissioners, DPH, NHS commissioners and HVs to join in these Twitter discussions.

Next #iHVForum takes place Monday 6 June 7-8pm – in support of Infant Mental Health Week (#IMHAW16)
