The collection of health visitor service metrics is currently under review and associated guidance for 2022/23 will be updated shortly. This follows the changes made during initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic and advice on use of virtual contacts. The review on data collection will reflect the national service model, which confirms that mandated reviews should be conducted face to face.
