A new model for providing a range of public health services for children and young people across #NorthYorkshire has received public approval.
We consulted the public, stakeholders and professional bodies over a 12-week period on a new way of working for the Healthy Child Programme.
The outcome of that consultation goes before the Council’s Executive next week.
Louise Wallace, North Yorkshire’s Director of Public Health explains: “The County Council, which leads on public health, has been funding the programme and working with the NHS Trust for a number of years to provide the service.
“We are now looking to continue that relationship for a longer term of up to 10 years. This will provide the opportunity to transform the way we provide services to children and families, and help closely align the programme with the Early Help Service run by the County Council’s outstanding-rated Children and Young People’s Service, as well as other health services and community support.”
