Can you see my baby? Health visitors prevent emergencies


Published on 21 December 2023

This iHV film showcases the vital role of health visitors in reducing A&E attendances for babies and young children. The film hears from parents about the crucial support that their health visitor provided to them, boosting their confidence in managing their child’s health.

This film is part of a suite of resources including a report which reveals that the under ones are the largest group of people by far who attend A&E across the country. A large proportion of these attendances are for non-urgent conditions, suggesting that they could be managed and supported by other means, including health visitors in the community.

The film is relevant for health visitors across the UK, and you can use it to promote the work that you do – so please do use and share it.

Please share the film far and wide.
