The Institute of Health Visiting (iHV) calls for Evidence from GPs and Paediatricians on how reductions in health visiting numbers since 2015 is affecting their workloads and patients.
The iHV is asking for GPs and Paediatricians to contact them with personal evidence of how the reductions in health visitor numbers since 2015 have affected their workloads and patients.
2015 was when commissioning of health visiting was moved to local authorities, accompanied by significant cuts to the public health budgets.
GPs and Paediatricians, please email your feedback to Julie.Cooper@ihv.org.uk
