Health visitor is honoured

Have your say

A health visitor who leads a service based at Melton Hospital has been invited to join the prestigious Institute of Health Visiting Fellowship programme.

Christina Brooks, who works for Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, is health visiting lead practice teacher/clinical team leader for the service based at Melton Hospital. She’s been recognised for her leadership in boosting the trust’s health visitor prescribing rates for emollients, from 25 to 80 per cent, for her ‘exceptional practice’ supporting women through domestic violence and for her child protection work. She will receive her certificate in March.
