Hospitals join forces to cut travel for sick children

The families of over 300 children with epilepsy and other neurological diagnoses have avoided having to travel nearly 30,000 miles of hospital trips after two hospitals joined forces to provide care closer to home.

The new partnership between two hospital trusts has reduced the need for children to miss school for medical appointments, minimised days off work for parents caring for their children and led to better, more convenient care for families.
