Family Nurse Partnership programme to be extended

The extension of the Family Nurse Partnership will give more young and disadvantaged mothers one to one support to bring up their babies.

Health minister Dr Dan Poulter has announced that 16,000 of the most disadvantaged new parents in the country will be offered tailored help and support from a specialist nurse by 2015. This means many more vulnerable children across the country will get a better start in life.
