Detail

To ensure that the needs of an ill and disabled children are met, four groups of children and young people have been identified as needing services:

  • children with acute and short-term conditions
  • children with long-term conditions
  • children with disabilities and complex conditions, including those requiring continuing care and neonates; and
  • children with life-limiting and life-threatening illness, including those requiring palliative and end-of-life care

Community children’s nursing (CNN) services are the bedrock of the pathways of these children’s care. The review aims to help both children’s commissioners and providers of children’s services improve services.
