Health Visiting (the specialism of public health nursing focusing on families and children) has been under threat over the last decade, with a considerable reduction in staff establishment. This has contributed to discrepancies in practice between broad public health standards, against which health visitor education is validated, and the reality of practice that is dominated by safeguarding (child protection) work. Negative workplace experiences have coincided with this reduction in staff numbers, include growing workloads, diminishing resources, and significant organisational change. Encountering such adversity in practice can impact negatively on the functioning and wellbeing of a newly qualified health visitor.
