Health visitor numbers increasing9th July 2012
The Department of Health has confirmed that it is "on track" to fulfil its target of increasing the number of health visitors by another 4,200 by April 2015.
The DH website said over 6,000 health visitors would be trained by 2015 and added: "Increasing health visitor numbers should allow local teams to improve public health outcomes and provide personalised care, giving health visitors more time to provide parents with critical health and development advice, and to connect families to the array of health and wider community resources that can help them give their children the best start in life."
