The Professional Lead for health visiting and school nursing at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded a major honour.

Rowena Harvey (pictured) has been made a Fellow of the Institute of Health Visiting (FiHV).

Rowena, who is based at the City Health Clinic, Wellington Street, Peterborough, said: “I am delighted to have received to have received this honour. To have been recognised in this way is truly humbling. I get so much satisfaction out of my job and this will only serve to encourage me to continue to help make a difference to the lives of children and their families.”

Rowena leads CPFT’s team of health visitors and school nurses who provide a range of services aimed at improving the health and well-being of children and young people in Peterborough as well as their families. Rowena also works for Health Education East of England as Locality Lead for the Health Visiting Programme. She is part of a team supporting the development of Health Visiting across the East of England.

The Institute of Health Visiting set up its Fellowship scheme in a bid to develop a network of expert health visitors across England.

To become a Fellow, the Institute states it is looking for "health visitors who are delivering excellence in practice and have made a real difference to the health outcomes of children and their families”.

It adds: “Fellows will act as local ambassadors for the IHV as well as being a unique resource for their employers and peers.”
