A New Look at Hall 4 – the Early Years – Good Health for Every Child
INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION

This guidance has been developed following extensive consultation with a wide range of stakeholders including front-line practitioners and parents/carers and takes account of the views expressed. It sets out the way forward for the successful delivery of Health for All Children (Hall 4) in the early years - a time where children's futures can be shaped by appropriate levels of support and intervention.

It supplements the 2005 guidance - Health for All Children 4: Guidance on Implementation in Scotland1- and addresses key issues identified as requiring further clarification. It is aimed at front-line practitioners, clinical leaders and others involved in the planning and delivery of health services to children and their families. Whilst aimed at the NHS, it recognises the need for inter-professional and multi-agency working, to deliver the best quality of care and support for children and their families in the vital early years.
