Family Nurse Partnership

The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) is a preventative programme offered to first time young parents. A family nurse is assigned to work with families from early pregnancy and will continue to work with the family up until their child is two.

The programme focuses on the future health and wellbeing of the child and mother and works with the strengths of the family offering weekly and fortnightly visits. The visits do not replace midwifery care but do deliver the core contacts as delivered by health visitors. Family nurses will often have backgrounds in midwifery and health visiting and receive extra training to equip them for their specialist role.
