BMA | February 2020| Supporting a healthy childhood: the need for greater investment in services in England
BMA has published its report Supporting a healthy childhood: the need for greater investment in services in England. The BMA’s analysis of recent data highlights insufficient investment in England across a range of services to support a healthy childhood, with funding for a number of different services being cut in recent years. This lack of resource is likely to have an adverse impact on child health in England.
The report includes:
- Analysis and findings of spending on children’s social care in 2019/20
- Recommendations for a cross-government ‘healthy childhood strategy’
- Recommendations to reverse budget cuts to children’s services in England
