To ask the Scottish Government how many health visitors have been recruited on a part-time basis in each of the last six years, broken down by NHS board.
Answered by: Shona Robison 29 August 2017
Workforce data on Health Visitors in contracted hours (part-time or full-time) is published quarterly by ISD Scotland and is available from March 2015 onwards at the workforce statistics web site:-
Health Visitors were part of a recent review of community nurses data. Therefore, information on the Health Visitor workforce prior to March 2015 is not comparable with previous years.
