FNP Next Steps is an improvement and innovation programme made up of four areas of work:

  • ADAPT (Accelerated Design and Programme Testing) - a process that uses 'rapid cycle innovation' to develop and test adaptations to the programme to improve outcomes for clients and make FNP more flexible, personalised and cost-effective.

  • Knowledge and Skills Exchange -  supporting the sharing of learning between services in order to increase local capacity and impact and improve cost-effectiveness.

  • Universal improvements - to improve the overall quality and efficiency of FNP and help sites to better meet local priorities.

  • Demonstrating impact - using a range of specially designed tools and approaches to highlight the effect of FNP and support local teams to improve performance and collect, understand and share data.

We are also developing some system-wide approaches to delivering services locally that enables more families to benefit from FNP methods and practices.
