"The Government has published its vision of a 21st-century children's health service aimed at improving the health and well-being of all children. This includes £340 million to support children with disabilities and their families.

The joint strategy Healthy lives, brighter future: the strategy for children and young people's health – published by Children's Secretary Ed Balls and Health Secretary Alan Johnson – 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.
