How will the Council protect the distinctive role of Public Health Nursing?

Our Public Health Team will continue to commission the service in line with national mandate and service specifications, exactly as they do now, just with Children’s Services as the provider.

There is a wealth of evidence endorsing the unique contribution of Public Health Nursing and this is supported by local stakeholder evidence from Virgin Care Ltd, GPs, schools, children’s centres and parents.

Devon County Council has vast experience in delivering a range of services and functions and each one is unique, with everything we do underpinned by a common set of values and leadership behaviours.
