Abstract

In the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland) children and their best interests are protected through a range of best practice initiatives, and legislation and guidance at country, national, European, and global levels. Some of the recent commitment by the government may be the result of enlightened thinking, but some of it has resulted from the aftermath of at least two major healthcare incidents. This article reviews the UK's recent national and international efforts to protect its thirteen million children and ensure that their voices are heard.
