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.”
