Children's Health Strategy

Volume 485: debated on Thursday 18 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) when he plans to publish the Children's Health Strategy; (245272)

(2) what proposals relating to children's palliative care will feature in the Children's Health Strategy.

Children, families and stakeholders have been engaged in developing the strategy over the summer, and the proposals are being aligned with other activity and recommendations from key reviews such as the CAMHS review. We expect to be in a position to publish the Child Health Strategy soon. Addressing the needs of disabled and terminally ill children will be part of this strategy.
