Children, Young People and Family

When considering the child, it is important to think of their health within the context of their family and their wider social circumstances. Over the last few years, we have been working with the local authority, schools, mental health, primary and secondary care and community health services and the voluntary sector to provide integrated services.

Coming Soon

  • We’re working towards bringing paediatricians into GP surgeries to review children and support GP consultations and training.
  • We are aligning atopy services across our two main providers and bringing care into community through nurse-led specialist working in GP surgeries.
