The Healthy Child Wales Programme (HCWP) is being implemented across all Welsh health boards from the 1 October 2016.

The HCWP will be a universal health programme for all families with 0 – 7 year old children. It will include a consistent range of evidence based preventative and early intervention measures, and advice and guidance to support parenting and healthy lifestyle choices.

The HCWP sets out what planned contacts children and their families can expect from their health boards from maternity service handover to the first years of schooling. These universal contacts cover three areas of intervention: 

  • screening
  • immunisation
  • monitoring and supporting child development.
