I know this isn't really a thread for HUKD but it has such a wide audience and I think parents of young kids out there will be interested, please be nice. In my area and many others children aren't seen from 6 weeks to their pre-school check. Speaking to other mums and dads I know I'm not alone in feeling this isn't right - I'm sure lots of people, like my son, are going to find themselves impacted over the next year or so when issues that are now missed come to light. Children who move area can be never seen, surely people can easily slip through the net?
Anyway, a petition was brought to my attention. So many people have said to me if there was such a thing they'd sign it but it's not known it's there. It needs 200 signatures to get it goverment attention, obviously the more the better!http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/ScreenAllUnder3s/
I urge you to sign it if you agree. It takes seconds to do.
