Review of children’s specialised services accelerated

NHS England has announced more details of the accelerated national reviews into paediatric critical care and specialised surgery for children.

The reviews, which are part of NHS England’s regular round of specialised commissioning service reviews, would normally take up to two years to complete, but have been fast tracked to run in parallel with other work on new nationally agreed standards for congenital heart disease.

The aim of the reviews is to ensure sustainable paediatric critical care and specialised surgery services which will deliver high quality, safe care to children and their families into the future – as close to the patient’s home as possible.
