This forms part of the Public Health England’s Healthy Child Programme which aims to bring together health, education and other main partners to deliver an effective programme for prevention and support and aims to meet the objectives set out in the National Child Health Digital Strategy, which are:

  • Knowing where every child is
  • Knowing how healthy each child is
  • Enabling the appropriate sharing of information for each child

The Service will be responsible for all children and young people aged 0-19 years (or 0-25 years old for children and young people with a disability). They will ensure that key information on a child’s health is available to their parents, any professionals involved in their care and for public health purposes.

The South West service will cover 707,721 0-19 year olds.
