|dc.description||Best Health for Children (1999) is the first phase of a longer term project to develop services relating to children's health. Following its publication, the Western Health Board set up a regional implementation group, the Child Health Steering Committee. Developmental screening for all babies at 7-9 months is a central element of the recommended core child health surveillance programme as described in Best Health for Children. It is also one of the cornerstones of the Child Health Service and the starting point for several other services for children. . A number of concerns.had been raised by the Child Health Steering Committee about the Developmental Screening Service within the Western Health Board region. In particular, concerns were expressed in relation to medical staffing levels and the . facilities available in the local health centres. The Committee decided that an assessment of the medical staffing and infrastructural requirements for the developmental scretming services should be carried out. This study was undertaken with the overall aim of identifying the resources, if any, required to implement the developmental screening programme described in Best Health for Children||en_GB|
