Evaluation of the 0-5 Public Health Investment in England: a mixed methods study integrating analyses of national linked administrative data with in-depth case studies

PROJECT STATUS: Ongoing
/
START DATE AND DURATION: September 2022
Summary

The government says that every family in England should see a member of the health visiting team five times before their child is three years old but there is variation in how much and what type of contacts families receive.

This study measures what happens to children’s health according to differing amounts and types of health visiting using information from hospitals, GPs, schools, and social care across England. We will also study several local areas in depth as case-studies. This study will help the government and professionals decide what health visiting services should look like.
