"Children and young people are important. They are the living message we send to a time we will not see; nothing matters more to families than the health, welfare and future success of their children. They deserve the best care because they are the life-blood of the nation and are vital for our future economic survival and prosperity"

Professor Al Aynsley-Green

Taken from the National Service Framework for Children Young People and Maternity Services; Professer Green was the National Clinical Director of Children at the time.
