Care continuity between midwifery and health visiting guidance

Content originally from Publich Health England

This week, we have published new guidelines on how to provide a seamless service between midwifery and health visiting services so that new parents and their babies are better supported within the healthcare system. The document is designed to act as a tool to support local practice implementation and improvements in the care continuity between midwifery and health visiting services. It was developed based on a literature search of current research, an examination of current UK guidance and policy and interviewing midwives and health visitors working in Local Maternity Systems.
