England: Consultation to shape HV and SN services in Durham

04 October 2019

A public consultation is to help shape the future of Durham’s health visitors and school nurses.

Durham County Council sought views and feedback on the services in a month-long consultation, which closed in September.

It is part of the council’s review of the ‘effectiveness and quality’ of Growing Healthy County Durham – a service that supports families, children and young people to live as healthy lives as possible.

Amanda Healy, director of public health, said: ‘Feedback will help shape the future of the vitally important HV and SN services.

‘Ensuring children have the best possible start in life and continuing to support families to improve their health outcomes is a high priority.

‘We want to make sure the new service meets the needs of families and children and young people in the county.’
