In this essay, Winnicott expresses his opinion that it would be a tragedy if private practice in child psychiatry were to disappear in the face of public health clinics. Winnicott describes his own contribution to the field of child psychology through his work at Paddington Green Children’s Hospital and states his belief that private practice provides an economical psychiatric method when compared with ordinary clinic results.
