The National Unit is commissioned by the Department of Health and Public Health England to support the delivery of FNP locally and oversee the programme nationally. Our role includes:

  • Providing training and clinical guidance to family nurse supervisors and nurses

  • Ensuring the support that clients receive is of the highest quality

  • Developing adaptations to the programme so it remains socially, politically and clinically up to date

  • Overseeing research and evaluation to highlight the effect of FNP and early intervention

  • Developing products that help improve outcomes for children, focusing specifically on pregnancy and the early years.                                                                                                                                                                                                  

We're a small team, housed in the the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. If you've got a question for us or would like to know more, get in touch!
