Exceptional health visitors who have made a real difference to children and their families.
At a recent conferment ceremony for the Institute of Health Visiting (iHV), four of Evelina London’s outstanding health visitors received fellowships.
Liz Dawson, Orpha Edwards, Ekaete George and Annette Eloise Jones-Steward joined 154 health visitors who convened at the Institute in London to receive their Fellowships.
The ceremony, the first of its kind for the iHV, recognised the professional achievements of exceptional health visitors who make a real difference to the health outcomes of children and their families.
Liz Dawson, Evelina London health visitor, said: “We’re all very honoured and proud to be involved in the fellowship programme. We’re excited to practise as ambassadors and influence health visiting as iHV fellows.”
Dr Cheryll Adams, Director of the iHV, said: “Our fellows are already really strengthening leadership in the health visiting profession and will now help develop the next generation of health visitors.
“The scheme set out to identify and acknowledge 150 exceptional health visitors who have made a real difference to health outcomes for children and families in England.”
The Evelina London health visitors went through a rigorous process in which they were assessed for their contributions to health visiting and also to children, families and communities.
