In this memorandum, Winnicott describes how child psychiatry is represented at Paddington Green Children’s Hospital by a rather unusual form of clinic, for many years part of the medical out-patient clinic. This structure brings the advantage of not having a waiting list. Winnicott’s double appointment—there and at the Institute of Psychoanalysis—means that many children receive full psycho-analytic treatment. Dr. Barbara Woodhead now holds his old position there. Winnicott contends that child psychiatrists need paediatric experience, training in psycho-analysis (adults and children), personal analysis, and the study of child psychiatry in relation to adult psychiatry. He argues for the department at Paddington Green Hospital being part of the paediatric unit.
