Professor Jane Appleton explains the public health role and value of contemporary health visiting.


Health visiting was established more than 150 years ago and provides a universal and public health preventative service to pre-school children and families. This lecture will describe the unique contribution of health visiting to safeguarding children in the community.


Drawing on research, Jane will make the case for why we need health visitors to promote child welfare and wellbeing.
