Healthcare professionals must provide guidance, promote best practice and optimise patient safety where patients and families choose a blended diet in preference to the prescribed commercial feed.

Many professionals and parents can mistakenly think that strokes only affect older people, leading to delays in diagnosis and prompt treatment. Children may need long-term support including physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and support with education.

Klinefelter syndrome, affecting males, is a collection of characteristics that occurs as a result of two or more X chromosomes. The syndrome was named after Harry Klinefelter, an American endocrinologist, and is common - occurring in all races. It is thought that one male in every 500 live births is affected and the incidence is rising. However, this may be due to increasing awareness, reflective of the sophistication of the methods to diagnose.
