0 - 19 SERVICE - UPDATE
1st November 2016
Members working in health visiting, school nursing, Family Nurse Partnership, National Child Measurement Programme and infant feeding support services contracted to Notts Healthcare by Notts County Council will be well aware of the significant changes planned for April 2017.
At this point members have had the opportunity to attend a consultation event. UNISON Reps were present in this process and put questions to management and members' behalf and will continue to do so.
Since then staff should have received details about how they will be personally affected.
