Help design better services in Primary Care for pregnant mothers and young children
All agencies involved in the care of pregnant women and young children are currently looking at how to improve services. Research is now proving that having a healthy start in life lays the foundations for all aspects of future
health and wellbeing.
‘What happens during these early years, starting in the womb, has life-long effects – from obesity, heart disease and mental health, to educational achievement and economic status.’ (Marmot) We would appreciate your views on how
services should develop.
