This briefing is intended to inform the Health and Sport Committee’s short inquiry on early years which is part of its themed work on health inequalities. It focuses on antenatal services, child health services and child development. It also provides examples of child health and wellbeing programmes from the rest of the UK and Europe. It does not focus on childcare and pre-school education as this is the subject of SPICe briefing 14/26 Early Learning and Childcare and 11/51 Early years – Subject Profile.
