The Best Start: The Future of Children’s Health – One Year on. Valuing school nurses and health visitors in England

Published: 14/05/2018
Publication code: 007000
In May 2017 the RCN reported on the significant decline in school nurses and an emerging trend of reductions in the health visiting workforce and included a number of recommendations addressed to the Government, local authorities and Health Education England. This short paper is focused on the position in England and therefore aims to update and build upon the issues covered in last year’s report.
