The iHV welcomes the Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH) position statement on the Best Start in Life.
Dr Cheryll Adams CBE said:
“The Institute of Health Visiting is delighted to support the ADPH position statement on Best Start in Life. We hope this will also enhance our own work highlighting the risks where health visiting services have been dramatically reduced across the country. In some places, the cuts greatly exceed the percentage cuts to public health budgets which greatly impacts the services it is possible to deliver for very young children and a light should be shone on that too.”
