Children: Health

Volume 486: debated on Wednesday 21 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families on what date he expects the Child Health Strategy to be published. (249009)

[holding answer 19 January 2009]: The Child Health Strategy is being developed jointly by the Department for Children, Schools and Families and Department of Health and will set out the Government's long-term strategy to support children’s and families’ health. It will be aimed at the NHS, local government and partnership organisations, and build on the work already being delivered through Every Child Matters and the National Service Framework for Children, Young People and Maternity Services. We hope to be in a position to publish the Child Health Strategy in February.
