Abstract

The child health profile was developed as an extension for older children of the personal child health record, which has normally been kept by mothers. The profile was introduced in three health board areas in Scotland. A questionnaire survey of young people revealed a mixed response concerning the usage and value of the profile. A small number had used it fully as a means of recording or communicating about personal health-related matters, but a majority had not actively used the profile and two fifths said they had lost their copy. Children reported that doctors and nurses rarely asked to see the profile. Many respondents wanted more extensive and detailed health information.
