Health for all Children

Growth charts

Harlow Printing and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) has now produced a complete suite of charts (supplied in the UK by Harlow Printing) for all uses ranging from child health surveillance to detailed monitoring of children with health problems. They use the WHO 2006 data between the ages of 2 weeks and 4 years and UK1990 data for birth and preterm data and after 4 years. There is also a Down Sydrome chart jointly published with the Down Syndrome Medical Interest Group which uses the UK Down Syndrome reference data.
