Children, Young People and Family

Add to CPD Subscribe to page updates

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 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.
