HC Deb 28 May 1976 vol 912 c496W
Mr. Steen

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many school nurses in Essex have the Health Visitor's Certificate; and how many have not.

Dr. Owen

The school health service in Essex is manned by clinic nurses, who may have other duties, to the equivalent of 115 full-time staff. None has the health visitor's certificate. Supervision is exercised by qualified health visitors.
