'I found myself wanting to cheer as I read the first chapter of this book, which states: 'The search for health needs has been a basic principle of health visiting for many years...This timely and relevant book is essential reading for members of trusts and primary care groups to remind them that all families with young children have health needs and that health visiting cannot be confined to a narrow medical model.' - June Thompson, Health Service Journal'This is a particularly well timed volume...I will recommend it very highly to my own colleagues involved in the field of community nursing.' - Jean McIntosh, Professor of Community Nursing Research, Glasgow Caledonian University
