Children’s Public Health Service Strategy

Our Strategy reflects our True North Ambitions and aspiration to lead the development of Children and Young People’s public health nursing services by sharing our expertise to benefit Children and Young People nationally. It provides a framework to align our improvement efforts to our Trust purpose, ambitions and values.

Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust (HDFT) is the largest provider of public health services for children and young people in England, supporting over 600,000 children and young people to have a great start in life.  We have the opportunity to lead the development of children and young people’s public health services, sharing our expertise to benefit children and young people nationally.  Our size and expertise in children and young people’s public health services creates a unique opportunity for us to be the leading NHS trust partner for research into children’s public health services.

Recognising our strengths and opportunities, and combining the ambitions from our overall Trust Strategy together, we have identified three ambitions for our Children’s Public Health Services Strategy:

  • To deliver great outcomes and impact for our children and young people.
  • To be an outstanding partner in every system where we provide services.
  • To be a leading voice and advocate for children’s public health services, locally and nationally.
