iHV writes to Treasury for renewed focus on strengthening health visiting in Spending Review

21st May 2019

The Institute has written to the Treasury with a call for a renewed focus on strengthening the health visiting service in England in the forthcoming Spending Review.

The letter sets out the case for an effective health visiting service as an important part of the solution to numerous cross-government department priorities for children. Yet, the Institute also raises concerns about the current variation in the way that local areas prioritise and support families in the first 1000 days with considerable unwarranted variation in the level of service that families receive dependent on where they live, rather than their level of need.
