Community Child Health: A paediatric workforce guide

RCPCH and BACCH are developing resources to support workforce planning for community paediatric services.

This work aims to update and broaden the guidance developed by BACCH in 1991 (PDF) and the more recent ‘prospectus', and associated calculator for community paediatrics services. It will support service design and commissioning for a population to ensure high quality care based on national standards and best practice.
