Developing a national public health tool for monitoring child health

Over the past four years BiB and it’s research partners in Yorkshire and Humber have been working with National Child and Maternal (ChiMat) Health Intelligence Network and the Department for Health. We have developed a tool to help predict how birth and early-childhood factors can have an impact on a child’s learning, development, behaviour and health. This tool, which will soon be released for national use, will inform how local councils and health providers design and improve services for young people.
