Universal health visiting service: mandation review

A review of the 5 mandated universal health checks, from pregnancy to age 2 and a half, as set out in Healthy Child Programme (0 to 5) | Public Health England

The Department of Health commissioned this review following the transfer of commissioning of public health services for children aged 0 to 5 years to local authorities in October 2015.

The review considered the:

  • support for existing and continued regulation
  • evidence of service transformation
  • risks to sustainability from a range of perspectives using data from different sources

The Cabinet Office’s Infrastructure and Projects Authority provided oversight and an external assessment of the method, findings and conclusions.

The review found widespread support for the regulation of these services to continue and for future arrangements to be considered alongside other regulated public health services.
