A Fenland health visitor has been given prestigious national recognition for her outstanding work.

Fleur Seekins has been awarded the title of Fellow of the Institute of Health Visiting.

She works for Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust and is one of the first 29 health visitors in England to be recognised for their outstanding contribution to the profession.

She said: “I feel privileged and honoured to be awarded the Fellowship, at an exciting and pivotal time for the service and I look forward to representing health visiting.

“Having attended the first of four leadership development days I felt energised to meet some of health visiting’s most inspirational leaders.”

The scheme has been started by the Department of Health to acknowledge exceptional senior health visitors in England, who have helped make a real difference to health outcomes for children and families.

The intention is that this scheme will not only recognise professional achievement, but will also identify and deliver a country wide group of expert and confident health visitor leaders.

Fleur who is based in Whittlesey, clinically leads Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust’s team of health visitors who provide a range of services aimed at improving the health and well-being of children and their families.
