Yesterday, 13 November 2018, Dr Cheryll Adams CBE joined a fantastic group of leaders from the sector to give oral evidence to the Health and Social Care Select Committee into the First 1000 Days inquiry.
There were lots of discussions about the important role that health visitors can play and also lots of support from others giving evidence to the committee – making the case for early intervention, prevention, relationships and babies in the First 1000 days. But key was that as a society we need to value early childhood and encourage and support parents in their role.
Cheryll’s oral evidence starts from 15:46 on the link to Parliament TV.
This oral evidence session follows the submission of written evidence from iHV to the committee earlier this year and published on the inquiry website.
