Public Health England (PHE) has published a new integrated 4-5-6 model for health visitors and school nurses, together with refreshed High Impact Areas for early years (health visiting) and the High Impact Areas for school aged years (school nursing).
These documents support local authorities and providers in commissioning and delivering children’s public health services aged 0 to 19 years. They are mainly intended for use by commissioners of health visiting and school nursing, and local authorities, to ensure that health visiting and school nursing services are commissioned effectively.
These documents identify 6 areas where health visitors have the highest impact on the health and wellbeing of children aged 0 to 5 years and a further 6 areas for school aged children from 5 to 19 years.
