Using general nurses to fill health visitor gaps puts children at risk


Sorry but if you do a good health needs assessment and feel more visits are required you act accordingly. It is a PROGRESSIVE universal service. I would recommend some people reread the healthy child programme, health visiting matters and other more recent government papers. There is no restriction on visits if they are warranted!
