Welcome to new 0 - 19 service colleagues

We'd like to welcome new colleagues who have joined our 0-19 service as part of the newly established integrated specialist intensive home visiting service (ISIHVS). 

The staff from RIPPLZ, who previously delivered the Family Nurse Partnership and Family First service in Derbyshire, transferred into DCHS from 1 July.

The ISIHVS health visitors are co-located within the 0-19 teams across seven localities. The service intensively supports families up to the child’s 2.5 years review (or beyond based on assessed need), and will undertake a joint preschool (age 3.5 - 4 years) review with 0-19 years staff to capture school readiness, ensuring there are no re-emerging unmet needs. The eligibility criteria for the service has broadened to support more families and young people across Derbyshire.

A big DCHS welcome to you all.
