The iHV is delighted to share new Good Practice Points providing up-to-date evidence and references for our Associate members:

NEW: GPP – Recognition and Treatment of Haemangioma

These Good Practice Points, authored by Mr Tobian Muir, Plastic and Reconstruction Surgeon, South Tees Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, set out what health visitors need to know about Recognition and Treatment of Haemangioma.

Health visitors should be aware of the incidence of infantile and congenital haemangioma and their prognosis, and be aware of the features of the different types of haemangioma and be able to recognise those which require treatment and when to refer to the child’s GP.
