in 2012, health visitors celebrate 150 years of the profession since the first health visitors (or Sanitary Inspectors as they were known in 1862) first started work in Salford, Greater Manchester. Throughout 2012, Unite/CPHVA will be celebrating this anniversary and we'll be updating the website with activities, information and available promotional material
New Health Visiting Timeline
You can have a look at the history of the profession here. You'll need to zoom in to read the text! We'll be updating this document as we do more research. If you have any comments or want to add a moment in time, get in touch with Dave Munday.
Don't forget to have a look at our CPHVA Facebook page which has some images from the last 150 years!
