Consultation description

We are seeking views on the revised National Framework for Children and Young People’s Continuing Care (including a tool to ensure all relevant needs are assessed and support decisions about care). The framework helps clinical commissioning groups and other professionals to assess the care required for children and young people with health needs that are not met by existing or specialised services.

The 2010 framework has been revised to take account of changes to commissioning and the new arrangements for children with special educational needs and disability.
