Looked After Children Resource Pack for GP and Practice Staff

Primary Care Services have an important role to play in the identification of the individual health care needs of children and young people who are looked after.  They often have prior knowledge of the child or young person looked after, of the birth parents and of carers, helping them to take a holistic and child-centred approach to health care decisions and may also have continuing responsibility for the child or young person when they return home.
