Prioritisation exists throughout healthcare. Difficult and controversial decisions are frequently made at national, local and service level, as well as on an individual basis. However, attention has generally been focused away from the practitioners and service managers who make day-to-day prioritising decisions in order to manage their workloads and deliver front-line services. Focusing on child health contexts, Prioritising Child Health opens up the debate on prioritisation by individuals and explores the issues surrounding their decisions. Grounded in the reality of everyday life, it encourages the reader to make their own judgements about how to prioritise. It will appeal to professionals working in child health, including speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists, as well as nurses, doctors and health visitors.
