The Wirral is one of 26 early implementer sites announced in March 2011 to demonstrate improvement and success in delivery of the new Health Visiting Service Vision and Family Offer as detailed in the “Health Visiting Implementation Plan: A Call to Action 2011-2015”. Pilot projects under way are looking at improving outcomes for children and families and ensuring greater awareness of and alignment of local early years services.

We are advised that in the Wirral, the results and lessons learned from the projects will be captured as case studies and shared within the region, as well as nationally to ensure the spread of key learning and improvement practice. This will be achieved through monthly knowledge sharing forums and specifically through an end of year event in March 2012.
