Children’s Health Resource Centre

Children’s Health Resource Centre

The Nursing in Practice Children’s Health Resource Centre aims to bring together the latest news and clinical articles on a range of paediatric conditions, including asthma, allergy, mental health and diabetes to help you provide the best care for children and infants.

Thanks to improved maternity services, better support for families, extensive immunisation and the push to identify and protect children at risk from violence, children in Britain enjoy better health than any previous generation. Primary care services are key to the health and protection of children and infants, and these organisations provide products and services for children, from birth to school age.
