Attempting to provide treatment for disabled children for Ultra-orthodox Jewish families in a deprived North London borough is complicated by their strict religious observance. For these families, strict adherence to what they see as the Law of God is paramount. Everything else, including the treatment and education of their children is subservient to it. This poses problems of management and resource allocation for the health and education authorities. This thesis examines the problems posed by this difference of priorities and suggests ways in which they may be overcome, without compromising either the beliefs of the families or the professional integrity of the providers.
