To ask the Scottish Government what steps it has taken to promote health visiting as an attractive career.

Answered by: Shona Robison 29 August 2017

The significant investment in training and recruiting additional health visitors by this Government since 2014 of over £40 million, the refreshed role of health visitors and the publication of a Universal Health Visiting Pathway: Pre-birth to pre-school in 2015 have all contributed to make health visiting an attractive career.
