Today's decisions for Tomorrow's children
Never have we needed to work together as much as in this moment. Following last week's referendum result, we face our biggest challenge as a sovereign nation. We call on our politicians and decision makers to provide strong, stable leadership and political unity in order to forge forward so that the UK can emerge stronger and truly united. This is an opportunity for us to create a national vision that considers the voice of all - the vulnerable, the disenfranchised, the previously unheard, our children and their families - as well as those who are loudest, most engaged or most visible.
We invite you to read the heartfelt blog written by BACAPH co-chair Dr. Simon Lenton:
A call for a change in political thinking and decision making "Today's decisions for Tomorrow's children"
BACAPH is you, me, and all of us
working together for child health!
We also need you to help us find the right people in BACAPH with particular interest, expertise, and passion to help develop BACAPH.
Tell us about your expertise, what you can contribute, how you can help our child health community to grow and be better equipped to improve child health in the UK.
