This Colour Handbook comprises concise text and clinical photographs covering the full spectrum of childhood diseases. It is the culmination of many years of hard work and we hope the final product will be well accepted and used for many years to come. The book encompasses every paediatric medical and surgical specialty. The number of authors (73) testifies to the scope and extent of the text. Most of the authors either trained at Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Trust or are current or past consultants at the Trust. Others have been co-opted to provide expertise in their special area of interest. One of us, Stephen Marks, was brought into the editorial team at a relatively late stage. He has provided the additional impetus to drive the project forward to its completion.
Special thanks are due to Patrick Daly and latterly to Ayala Kingsley for coordinating the contributions, and to Michael Manson and his team for their patience and forbearance. We hope the book will be used not only in medical libraries and personal collections but will be freely accessible on paediatric wards and in general practice, for use by medical and nursing staff. The book aims to inform all of us who care professionally for children, and to help explain to parents the details of their child’s condition and the help which is available.
