In March, the RCPCH published its ‘State of Child Health 2020’ report. This landmark report provides a snapshot of infant, children and young people’s physical and mental health.
The RCPCH say: “On 4 March 2020, RCPCH launched our new State of Child Health. The update provides the latest data from our 2017 indicators, alongside evidence for new indicators, including: looked after children, mental health, youth violence, young carers and the child health workforce. Alongside this, we’ve spoken to 2,000 children and young people to find out what makes them feel “healthy, happy and well”.
We’ve outlined our key asks for each of the UK Governments, which we hope will ensure delivery of key policy decisions to improve child health outcomes.
The State of Child Health 2020 Report utilises comparable UK data across 27 child health and wellbeing indicators to produce a range of associated recommendations aimed at improving outcomes. It builds on the 2017 Report which provided an unprecedented snapshot of how infant, children and young people’s physical and mental health was faring across the UK.
