Family Nurse Partnership Programme (Shropshire)

Description:

The Family Nurse Partnership is a preventive service offered to first time young parents, that builds upon their strengths enabling them to fulfill their aspirations.

The programme improves pregnancy outcomes, child health and development, and the family’s economic self-sufficiency.  It is offered throughout pregnancy and continues until the child is two, and is based upon thirty years of research and development.

During the programme, the client’s midwifery care continues as normal.  The client is not assigned to a Health Visitor until the child is 2 years old.  Family Nurses will deliver elements of the “Healthy Child” programme; an integral part of the FNP programme, and will also continue to liaise with the Health Visitors and GPs, as necessary.

For more information about the Family Nurse Partnership, please follow the link to visit their website, or contact using the details provided.
