We want to hear about your experience of Health Visiting, School Nursing and the Family Nurse Partnership services in Buckinghamshire that support the health and wellbeing of children, young people and their families.

Buckinghamshire Council’s Healthy Child Programme (HCP) is a public health nursing service for 0 to 19 year olds delivered by Health Visitors, School Nurses and Family Nurses.

The aim of the service is to ensure every child is getting a good start in life and throughout childhood, building resilience and getting maximum benefit from education – which are important markers for good health and wellbeing throughout life.

Our Healthy Child Programme (HCP) is due to be recommissioned shortly and we are conducting a children and young people’s health needs assessment (HNA) to inform and support this.

The HNA will identify how the current 0 to 19 service is working and linking with other health and social care services, including voluntary and community sector services.

We would like to hear from children, young people and their families, carers and the public who use children’s public health nursing services in Buckinghamshire.

We are asking people to share their experiences of using health visiting, school nursing and the family nurse partnership in Buckinghamshire.

What support and advice is important to you? How can we make it easier for you to use these services? Have your say!

The survey should take you around 15 minutes to complete. 

We will not ask for your name or any personal details and, although we are very interested to hear your views, please don’t feel that you must answer every question.

How to have your say

You can tell us your views by completing the online survey using the link at the end of the page.

If you have any questions about this activity, please email Solutions for Public Health at gursimar.kang@nhs.net.

If you need to contact the service, please get in touch with them directly as we are independent of the services themselves.

Please tell us your views by midnight on Sunday 29 May 2022.

What happens next

The information we receive from this survey will be included within the Children’s and young people’s Health Needs Assessment which is currently being completed by Public Health with the support of the consultant body Solutions for Public Health.

Your feedback will sit alongside data from stakeholders and also epidemiological data and will be used initially to support the decisions in the recommissioning of the Healthy Child Programme and other services.
