The Journey of Childhood Public health: From the Victorian Age to the present

From inter-war malnutrition to Every Child Matters

The health issues facing children in the UK have changed dramatically since the emphasis on child labour in Charles Kingsley’s The Water Babies (1863): Florence Nightingale’s personal copy of this text features in our exhibition. Dr Jane K. Seymour (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) explores the role of public health doctors and their teams, which included school nurses and health visitors, in the inter-war period, while Professor Viv Bennett CBE (Chief Nurse, Public Health England) reflects on later developments in child health.

How do we ensure that every child gets the best start in life?
