Health Visiting consists of developing, leading and managing activities that aim to promote health and social well-being, prevent health breakdown and ameliorate ill health through working with individuals, families, groups and communities. Through partnership working, health visitors seek to enable clients to take control of their lives whilst protecting vulnerable members of society. Public health work that promote social inclusion and reduces inequalities in health is central to health visiting practice.
The course focuses on promoting the health of children, families and groups in a community setting. It considers the issues involved in safeguarding the health of vulnerable children, families and populations. The overall aim is to develop an effective practitioner who is able to identify actual and potential health needs, stimulate an awareness of health needs, facilitate evidence based health enhancing activities and influence policy at all levels.
The government is committed to increasing the number of Health Visitors and, as a result, there are many more sponsorships available than usual. The London Deanery is coordinating all applications for Health Visiting 2013. For more information and to apply, visit The London Deanery website.
