ABSTRACT
This article presents abstracts related to community health presented at the 8th Spring meeting of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, University of York in York, England during March 29 to April 1, 2004. As the obesity epidemic increases the early identification of at risk children will become important so that they can be included in weight reduction programmes as these are developed. While social deprivation is associated with increased perinatal and neonatal mortality, little is known of its influence on neonatal morbidity. The aim of this study was to determine whether deprivation is associated with increased need for neonatal unit admission.
