Description:
On 22nd April, 1970 the Working Group on Child Health Records established by the Minister for Health held its first meeting and held a total of 19 all day meetings and one halfday meeting. The final meeting was on nth December, 1970. 2. The Working Group was aware that the Minister for Health wished to introduce the pre-school record card during October, 1970 when developmental paediatric examinations for babies aged 6 months were due to commence in the major urban areas. Revised school health procedures were also envisaged and it was desirable to have a new School Health Card available as soon as possible. The Group had, therefore, of necessity to work at an intensive pace so that the pre-school card particularly could be designed, printed and distributed to Health Authorities by October, 1970. 3· The Working Group notes with satisfaction that the Minister for Health accepted without delay the cards designed by the Group and that the pre-school card was printed and distributed to Health Authorities during October, 1970 and the School Health Card was issued in December, 1970. 4· The Working Group examined a wide range of child health record cards. They would particularly like to acknowledge the benefit derived from consulting the pre-school record designed by the Royal College of General Practitioners and the School Card issued by the Department of Education and Science, London. 5· The Working Group would like to acknowledge the very considerable assistance received from Dr. J. H. Wright, Senior Lecturer in General Practice at the University of Manchester, for his continuous interest and advice regarding the pre-school card. Two members of the Group had a detailed and fruitful discussion with him in Manchester. Dr. D. L. Crombie, Director of the General Practice Research Unit of the Royal College of General Practitioners gave the Group valuable advice on the Research, Educational and Administrative Applications of the pre-school card. As regards the School Health Record Card, the Working Group wishes to acknowledge the excellent co-operation received from the Department of Education and Science, London. The Ministry of Health and Social Services, Northern Ireland, were most helpful in furnishing a comprehensive selection of record cards used in their services and in giving a detailed account of developments in records and record linkage.
