The Evaluation of the Family Nurse Partnership Programme in Scotland: Phase 1 Report – Intake and Early Pregnancy

The Family Nurse Partnershhip (FNP) is a preventative programme for first time teenage mothers and their babies. FNP is being tested in Scotland for the first time. This is the first interim evaluation report and focuses on the intake and early pregnancy phases of the programmes implementation.


ScotCen would like to thank everyone involved in the preparation of this report - Vanessa Strong for all her work on preparing the monitoring data, Victoria Milne, Carolyn Wilson, Gail Trotter and colleagues at the Scottish Government for feedback on early drafts, as well as Sally Egan, Val Alexander and colleagues at NHS Lothian for feedback on interim findings.

We are particularly grateful to all the clients, Family Nurses and stakeholders who gave up their time to take part in the evaluation, and to Val Alexander and her team for their help with recruitment of participants in this evaluation.

Thanks are also due to Irene Miller for her help with interviewing clients and Nurses.
