Health visitor service delivery metrics are published by Public Health England (PHE) on a quarterly and annual basis. This collection is based on a voluntary submission of aggregate data by local authorities.

As regulations require that the one year review is completed by the time the child turns 15 months, information on 12 months old and 15 months old is available. There is no national data collection for reviews which are carried out late (such as 18 months or 24 months).

The attached tables show the number of children who had not received their one year health check at 12 months and 15 months in England and in each local authority. This is based on data received by PHE covering the period April to June 2018 (Quarter 1 2018/19).
