On 15/09/04 the Department of Health published the National Service
Framework (NSF) for Children, Young People and Maternity Services. The
Children’s NSF is a 10-year programme intended to stimulate long-term and
sustained improvement in children’s health. Setting national standards for
health and social services for children, young people and pregnant women,
the NSF aims to ensure fair, high quality and integrated health and social
care from pregnancy, right through to adulthood.
The Children's NSF receives coverage in the Guardian, Times, and BBC News.
