Mother, father and babyAll Family nurses and supervisors receive mandatory training to cover all phases of the programme. More detail about the education programme is included in our evaluations.

We have implemented the programme in ten health board areas across Scotland.  We are committed to expanding the programme to be able to offer it to every eligible teenage mother by the end of 2018.

We are also expanding the programme to offer it to eligible 20 - 24 year olds from April 2016.  The FNP National Unit are working with FNP teams to develop appropriate referral criteria.
