The editors, from an established paediatric unit, have drawn together a team of contributors to share their experiences and discuss how best the district hospital can provide a service for paediatric patients. Controversial areas are discussed, supported by the most recent reports and guidelines. It is intended that this will be a practical and thought provoking guide.
