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. 'Everyone involved in children's and young people's care from frontline clinicians and support staff to managers at all levels must work out ways of matching policy with action to improve the care they provide for children and young people. This book helps you do just that. If you want to improve the care you provide to your young patients and their parents - read on and you and your team can start to craft the care that your child and young people patients deserve.' Professor Al Aynsley-Green National Director for Children
