Government's Child Health Strategy - 12 February 2009

RCPCH Statement - Government's Child Health Strategy - 12 February 2009

Dr Simon Lenton, Vice President, Health Services, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) said:

"The great thing about the strategy is that it comes with a significant amount of new money targeted around an area of genuine need. We would like to see some of this being spent on children with long-term conditions and complex needs, such as cerebral palsy.

"We will be delighted to play our part in making this strategy a reality. Paediatricians in the UK are at the forefront of working with children and young people with disabilities. We have always advocated working across boundaries for the good of children and we welcome the emphasis on a joined up approach."
