  • The conference was based on the Consumers' Association report "Children in Hospital" which investigated the extent to which hospitals have implemented DHSS recommendations since the Platt Report. Its aim was to develop the concept of change and in particular how staff with responsibility for children in a general hospital face the demands made of them by colleagues, children and relatives. The two main problems were ones of attitudes - understanding of the basic needs of young children; and the practical difficulties people have working with children in a general hospital. Psycho-social aspects of caring and childrens' responses are discussed, with practical viewpoints from professionals at Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton.
