Survey of Health Visitors

A postal survey was carried out among health visitors working in areas covered by the MCS sampling points. They were asked about the availability of a wide range of health and other services that might be available to young families in, or adjacent to those wards. Their reports can be used to increase the ecological information surrounding the interview data, along with material extracted from ONS Neighbourhood Statistics (subject to precautions to avoid disclosure). A report on the findings of the Health Visitor Survey by Angela Brassett-Grundy, Neville Butler and Heather Joshi is available for download.
