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 involves:

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

  • Ensuring that FNP clients receive the highest quality support

  • 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, based at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. If you've got a question for us or would like to know more, get in touch!
