New – iHV Local Authority Briefing (9): The Health Visiting contribution to Child Accident Prevention

20th October 2016

Local authorities are charged with commissioning children’s public health services as part of a wider remit for children’s services.

This new briefing for commissioners of children’s services provides an overview of the central role that health visitors play in reducing unintentional injuries in the under-fives, along with the associated high personal and financial costs to children, families, communities and society.

Unintentional injuries in and around the home are a major cause of death and disability among the under-fives in England.

Please share this Local Authority Public Health briefing with your local commissioners – along with the other briefings in the series (under the “For commissioners” section on the link below).
