RCGP Curriculum - 8 Care of Children and Young People

This section of our curriculum guide refers to statement 8, Care of Children and Young People, produced by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

GPs have an important role in the care of children and young people. Most care for children and young people is delivered outside the hospital setting, and there is good evidence that providing care in primary care delivers improved outcomes in the health of children and young people.

The experiences of children and young people in early life – and even before birth – have a crucial impact on their life chances. Promoting health in children and young people can be included in all contacts with a child, a young person and their family, and should be targeted particularly at the vulnerable and socially excluded.

Here we have collated key articles from our journals to help you meet the curriculum requirements in this area.


These curriculum resources are regularly updated with relevant articles from our range of healthcare publications. All articles are reviewed by GP advisers. We have set the standard lifetime of an article at two years and will aim to renew all articles within that timeframe. However, some older articles will remain in the listing if our reviewers believe there to be no significant changes to the topic covered.
