Council statement: breastfeeding services
Barnet Council has issued a media statement regarding its breastfeeding services.
A Barnet Council spokesperson said: “We appreciate the concerns raised, however, we want to reassure residents that breastfeeding support services will continue to be provided to mothers in Barnet after the contract with Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust comes to an end in April, and will complement the wider range of support on offer for children and families.
“We are currently working with the existing provider to ensure there is a smooth transition to the new service. This includes providing funding to maintain the role of a service co-ordinator for an additional six month period, to assist with specialist training and development.”
