After nearly two years of consultation and preparation, the Health Visiting service in Blackpool has changed significantly.

This two-and-a-half hour launch is designed for health, education, children's services, early years professionals and those who work with children aged 0-5 in Blackpool. The event will give you an overview of the Health Visiting Transformation programme, it's scope, implementation and aims, and will culminate in a World Cafe session with Blackpool's Health Visitors as the programme officially launches across the town. There will be a mid-session break for networking opportunities and refreshments.

Blackpool Better Start has invested £1million into transforming the health visiting service across the town. The new service has been created with the help of Blackpool parents and healthcare professionals as part of Blackpool Better Start’s ten-year programme to improve life chances for children aged 0-4. The investment includes extensive consultation with parents, healthcare practitioners and external consultants; the redesign of the service model; the training of all practitioners; and the review and creation of all assessment tools.

This event will give you a greater understanding of the transformation taking place, how it relates to your work, and how it will positively impact Blackpool families and the services available to them.
