NCT response to expansion of the Family Nurse Partnership programme

Released on: 04 April 2013

On Thursday 4 April the Department of Health announced the expansion of the Family Nurse Partnership programme, which offers one-to-one support for disadvantaged families.

NCT’S Chief Executive Belinda Phipps said:

“The Family Nurse Partnership programme will play a pivital role in improving continuity of care for new parents.  Parents have different needs and it is easy for problems and worries to be missed. 

“Having a specially trained family nurse will give vulnerable families the support they need during the first 1,000 days, giving children the best possible start in life.”
