Family Nurse Partnership Privacy Notice
The Family Nurse Partnership National Unit (FNPNU) is commissioned by Public Health England (PHE) and the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) to support the delivery of Family Nurse Partnership locally. The programme is run by PHE under licence from the DHSC.
PHE exists to protect and improve the nation’s health and wellbeing, and to reduce health inequalities. It is an executive agency of the Government, sponsored by the DHSC. You can find out more about Public Health England and what it does here. View the Public Health England Personal information charter providing details of how PHE uses information. The FNPNU supports the delivery of the FNP early intervention programme locally and oversees the programme nationally.
This privacy statement only covers the FNPNU website (www.fnp.nhs.uk). It does not cover all sites that can be linked to from this site, so you should always be aware when you are moving to another site and read the privacy statement on that site.

Changes to our policy
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss and alteration of information under our control. Our website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificates to encrypt information between the browser and web server, preventing hackers from stealing any data communicated
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
- Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
- Recognising that you may already have given a username and pass word, so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
- Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
- You can manage these small files yourself through your browser setting.
