Doctors should be trained to hold babies

17th September 2010

Professor Sir Ian Kennedy, the former chair of the Healthcare Commission, has headed a report which has suggested GPs should receive childcare training.

Sir Ian said a doctor had informed him that "some GPs do not even know how to hold a baby". He added: "There needs to be an identification of the money that should be allocated to children from the total pot. Currently children do not get a look-in because the needs of adults simply trump the needs of children."
