    Child Health in London explores the history of the health of the capital's children. It’s a story of young lives blighted by deprivation and disease with little hope of a cure, transformed by breakthroughs in diagnosis, treatment and prevention, and underpinned by advances in public health and science, public administration, the caring institutions and the medical profession. From the medical records of the Foundling Hospital, established in the 18th century by Thomas Coram, one of the first pioneers of child care, through the records of children's hospitals and clinics founded in the 19th century, to those of the school health services set up by the London County Council in the 20th, this exhibition makes connections in a sometimes fragmented history and a provides a fascinating background to the issues facing children and young people in London today.
