Description:
This is the second annual report produced on the activities of Best Health for Children. The project was established by the Chief Executive Officers of the Health Boards to promote conjoint working in the area of child and adolescent health.At the request of the Chief Executive Officers of the eight health boards a review was commissioned of the child health services for the 0-12 year age group in 1996. Dr. Sean Denyer, Dr. Lelia Thornton and Dr. Heidi Pelly carried out a comprehensive review that was completed in 1999 entitled 'Best Health for Children'. In early 1999 a National Conjoint Child Health Committee chaired by Dr. Sean Denyer was established to oversee the implementation of the report's recommendations. The committee includes representatives from each health board, the Department of Education and Science, the National Parents Council and an observer from the Department of Health and Children. In the summer of 1999 two National Child Health Co-ordinators were employed, Dr. Ailis Quinlan and Ms. Caroline Cullen. The key themes of the report Best Health for Children are based on • Developing a child centred health promotion approach • Creating a partnership between professionals and parents • Quality assurance systems and procedures that support screening • Screening based on evidence • Improved co-ordination for children with complex problems • Improved management and increased accountability In addition to the initial report the Chief Executive Officers of the health boards have requested that a review of the health services for the 12 to 18-year age group should be carried out as part of the development of the project.
