PARLIAMENTARY BRIEFING: Scottish Conservatives debate: Education 8 June 2016

08 June 2016
In this briefing RCN Scotland sets out its support for the introduction of the Named Person provision and highlights the key contribution made by health visitors to child and family health.
RCN Scotland fully supports the principle of the Named Person, which will promote, support and safeguard the wellbeing of children and young people in Scotland. But the Named Person will introduce new responsibilities to health visitor roles and these responsibilities need to be reflected in health visitors’ job descriptions and level of remuneration.
