Highly Commended in the 2005 BMA Medical Book Competition The Children's National Service Framework sets standards for children's and young people's services, outlining what support should be available to children and their parents in managing and preventing a wide range of conditions and problems. This book is a companion to the Children's (NSF), enabling those that work within the NHS, social care and education to the put the NSF into practice in primary care. Contributions throughout from key professionals who were involved in the evolution of the framework help by providing guidance and expertise from the knowledge and background material gained throughout its development. The authors expand on the vision, themes and goals published within the NSF and make recommendations for the ways that best practice can be implemented, particularly for children's healthcare throughout the UK and anywhere in the Western world. General practitioners, child health specialists, community nurses and anyone with an interest in or responsibility for the care of children in primary care and the interface with social care and education, will find this book invaluable reading.
