I was invited by the Institute of Health Visiting (iHV) to represent them at the CYPE Committee. The meeting was in Committee Room at the Senedd Cardiff. I have not been to a Committee meeting before, so was uncertain what to expect. It was ‘interesting’ with big desks between the four of us to be interviewed and the 10 strong Committee – looking austere, but approachable! There were many questions and many answers. *Sharon Fernandez* came with me and together we championed the cause of *Health Visitors,* stressing the need for investment in training and development of what would be a robust service.
