Together with Children’s Secretary Ed Balls, I have recently published the Government’s long term vision of a 21st Century children’s health service aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of all children.
The Child Health Strategy includes £340 million to support children with disabilities and their families. Together with funding previously announced this brings the total investment in services for disabled children over the next three years to a record £770 million.
The joint strategy Healthy lives, brighter future: the strategy for children and young people’s health sets out for the first time what children and their families can expect from child health services in their areas from birth through to the age of 19.
