The Integrated Specialist Public Health Nursing (ISPHNS) service provides the Healthy Child Programme, Safeguarding and Public Health Nursing services from the 28th week of pregnancy until your child leaves school, and for those children with Special Needs and disabilities the service continues until 25 years.

The service delivers Health Visits, mandated contacts for under 5s, provides Early Support, can assess and refer families with children with additional needs to the Early Support Panel and signposts families to other services and support.

The ISPHN Service helps in the development of Education Health Care Plans (EHCP) and establish partnership and collaborative working systems with families and other agencies to support families.

For children in schools the ISPHN Service provides health promotion activities and will offer health need assessments (HNAs) to those who are home educated, young carers or for those who have unmet health needs. Chathealth texting service is available for those aged 11-19 years (Text: 07507 332 891).

Family Nurse Partnership Programme (FNP)

The FNP Programme is an integral part of the ISPHN service. It is a voluntary programme offered to under-20-year-olds expecting their first baby (25-year-olds for mothers with SEND). A specially-trained family nurse will work with you on lots of different aspects of pregnancy and parenthood and provide the Healthy Child Programme. They usually visit every one to two weeks starting in early pregnancy until the child is two years old. The programme can be fit around you and your specific needs.
