There is an urgent need for us all to work together to achieve robust and timely health advice and action whenever it is needed by looked after children and young people. Their carers need the support of clear policies and protocols, mandatory training and access to professional advice and help. This book crosses the boundaries between the various professionals involved. It aims to clarify some of the problems they all face and encourage us how to address them in partnership. Short case studies will help you to consider the truly difficult plight of these children and young people, and make the book come alive. It emphasises: accessing and providing continuous care; and, addressing the particular difficulties around engagement, relationships, confidentiality. All the authors have expertise in their field and between them a wealth of experience. Each chapter can be read alone, so you do not need to read cover to cover. This book is an easy reference guide: 'dip in' and find the appropriate information as required. It can be of use to anyone involved in or studying the care of looked after children and young people, regardless of your level or area of experience.
