Proposals for commissioning a 0-19 Integrated Healthy Child Programme in Newcastle 2016 - This consultation has now ended

As part of the 2016-17 budget setting process, the Council consulted on its plans to undertake a service redesign and develop a new service specification in order to commission a 0-19 integrated Healthy Child service which would encompass both the School Nursing and 0-5 Health Visiting Service, with the intention to deliver both efficiencies and better streamlined services and outcomes for children and families. 

The review is now complete and has included a full health needs assessment and a consultation exercise. Over 650 parents, carers, young people and professionals engaged with us as part of the review, which was conducted face to face and through surveys during May and June 2016
The feedback from this consultation has informed our proposals for the future model and commissioning of the 0-19 Integrated Healthy Child Programme in Newcastle. 
We are consulting on those proposals until 28th July. This includes a drop in day in the Pandon Room at Newcastle Civic Centre on 22 July 2016, 10.30am to 4.00pm, where members from the project team will be available to answer any questions.
