The National Unit is commissioned by the Department of Health and Public Health England to support the delivery of FNP locally and oversee the programme nationally. Our role includes:

  • Providing training and clinical guidance to family nurse supervisors and nurses

  • Ensuring the support that clients receive is of the highest quality

  • Developing adaptations to the programme so it remains socially, politically and clinically up to date

  • Overseeing research and evaluation to highlight the effect of FNP and early intervention

  • Developing products that help improve outcomes for children, focusing specifically on pregnancy and the early years.                                                                                                                                              
                                                           

The Unit is led by a consortium of the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, Dartington Service Design Lab and Impetus - Private Equity Foundation.

The National Unit is made up of four teams: Clinical Quality, Operations, Improvement and External Affairs, Research and Analysis and Corporate Services. You can read more about the Heads of these teams below.
