Abstract The importance of United Kingdom health visitors ' in the detection and treatment of peri - natal depression in primary care services is well documented . Evidence based policy and clinical guidelines make recommendations for the prediction , detection and treatment of women with mild to moderate depression in the postnatal period continuing up to a year after delivery . An inter - professional cross organisational practice development project aimed to assess the provision of antenatal and peri - natal mental health care within one health visiting service in accordance with NICE guidelines (2007) . This paper discusses the disparity between guidelines and health visiting practice ; a lack of training in listening visits or other psycho therapeutic methods , poor access and availability of clinical supervision , commissioning reforms leading to larger health visiting caseloads suggesting the service is unable to meet NICE recommendations . Lastly , the evidence suggests the scope and practice of community nurses ' within health visiting teams should be expanded .
