The CPHVA and its Website – Notes for ‘Visitors’
The Community Practitioners’ and Health Visitors’ Association (CPHVA) is the professional body that represents health visitors, school nurses, district nurses and practice nurses on professional and labour relations’ matters.
The website is primarily for the benefit of our members. As a membership organisation, we don’t deal directly with members of the general public.
Our limited resources are solely channelled into providing advice and support to our members.
Membership number should included when emailing the CPHVA’s staff with a professional query.)
Media inquiries should be directed to the CPHVA’s Communications Officer, Shaun Noble on 020 7939 7043 email: [email protected]
As a leading health website, we receive about 18,000 ‘visits’ a month and, as a result, many organisations wish to have links to the CPHVA site. Organisations that wish to insert a CPHVA link to their own website should first seek permission by emailing, the Information Resources Department at
The CPHVA has a strong Ethical Policy governing our relationships with external organisations, companies and professional bodies.
We do take measures to see that any website linked to ours conforms to that policy, however the CPHVA takes no responsibility for the accuracy, advice and information that these linked sites might give.
CPHVA may make improvements and/or changes as appropriate in the materials contained in or described on this site at any time without notice.
Our advice to the members of the public viewing the internet, who have concerns about any health issue they read about, is that they should first consult their GP or health professional as every individual’s health requirements are different.
