Whatever else happens to the NHS, it is certain that the child measurement programmes are here to stay [and might even be extended!]. Are your staff ready for this and are they fully trained?. The new Royal College of Paediatrics & Child Health/Department of Health school-age growth charts emphasise the need “ for everyone who measures a child, plots or interprets charts “ to be suitably trained.
