The ‘damage’ will only be recognised in future years

Families with babies & young children in York will bear the brunt of proposed cuts to health visitors & school nurses by the city council, Unite, the union, warned last week.  To alert the 200,000 people covered by the City of York Council as to the extent of the cuts, Unite staged a demonstration at St Helen’s Square, near the Mansion House/Guildhall entrance last week.

The health visitor and school nurse workforce was transferred from the NHS to the council in August 2015 – and now the city council wants to reduce the number of community nurses by about 16%.
