Family Nurse Partnership
The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) programme is run by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust under licence from the Department of Health. It's an intensive, nurse-led programme of home visits for vulnerable, first time, young parents.
FNP nurses visit parents from early pregnancy until the child is two years old. The nurses build a close, supportive relationship with the whole family, guiding mothers to adopt healthier lifestyles, improve their parenting skills and become self-sufficient.
The FNP application is available via Open Exeter and used by the nurses to record the information gathered during the home visits. It gives authorised users access to a database, allowing them to schedule visits to FNP clients and record the outcomes.
