0-19 Healthy Child Service
Resolved: That the Executive approve Option Three – to allow the contracts for the existing health visiting, school nursing and National Child Measurement Programme to end on 31 March 2016 and create an “in house” provision with a new delivery model with effect from 1 April 2016.
Reason: Given the imperative to ensure that the establishment of a new Healthy Child Service supports the delivery of the transformation programme already in progress across children’s services and, in particular, the offer provided by Children’s Centres and Youth Services, including Castlegate, this is the option that provides the greatest flexibility and value for money. It will also facilitate local integration with health services for children and young people that are delivered by NHS organisations such as York Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust.
