Since 2007, the approximate number of family nurses and family nurse partnership (FNP) supervisors working (full-time equivalents) in local FNP sites each year is 52 in 2007-08, 180 in 200-09, 270 in 2009-10, 295 in 2010-11. We expect there to be 430 by the end of 2011-12.

The total number of clients to have received assistance from the FNP programme to date (December 2011) is over 8,000. The approximate number of new families who have joined FNP each year from 2007 was 1,189 in 2007-08, 889 in 2008-09, 2,331 in 2009-10, 2,583 in 2010-11 and 1172 so far in 2011-12. Families receive assistance from FNP for up to two and a half years.
