  9. 9. Responding to new threat to services health visitors can provide to families What is the threat? – since end of call to action have already lost over 900 FTE health visitors. 56% of Directors of Public Health expect further cuts in 2017. With no intervention could lose all increase to workforce that have gained since 2012. Only real solution is reinvestment into public health (with ring fencing!) – Treasury/Cabinet decision. State of Health Visiting Survey launched today (n = 1228): • 16% have responsibility for 500-1000 families • Only 30% can provide antenatal visits to all parents • Only 5% can offer continuity of care all the time and 55% most of the time • 75-80% report an increase in DVA and perinatal mental illness past 2 years • 25% of Health Visitors feel their time is spread too thinly to make much difference What will be the effects on children and families of even more cuts?
