In the June 2014 Community Practitioner we produced an infographic that showed #HVFactsandFigures in England. This provided a quick and easy view of the data that is available on the number of health visitors, some of the previous trends and the position once the HV plan is achieved in 2015.
As well as the infographic there are a number of other resources that give the background to the info-graphic and a number of other resources that might be of interest.
