Department of Health (DH) -
From 1st October 2015, the responsibility for commissioning children’s public health services, including health visitors, will transfer from NHS England to local authorities. These documents aim to help support local authorities and stakeholders through the transition. The documents identify 6 areas where health visitors have the most impact on children aged 0 to 5’s health and wellbeing. Local authorities should use this information to ensure that health visiting services are commissioned effectively.
