NHS ENGLAND'S PAEDIATRIC CRITICAL CARE AND SPECIALISED SURGERY IN CHILDREN REVIEW pdf icon PDF 1 MB

To consider NHS England’s review of paediatric critical care and specialised surgery for children launched in October 2016.

 

Several engagement events were held between January and March 2017 – bringing clinicians and experts in paediatric critical care together to discuss the areas they see as the greatest challenge facing services and to get their ideas on how things could be improved. Following these events, NHS England are developing a proposed new model of care in response to these issues, while also looking at existing data on paediatric critical care which highlights the pressures on critical care services.

 

NHS England has produced an analytical pack containing some of the review’s early work which examines why there is pressure on paediatric intensive care units. They are also currently looking at the data available on specialised surgery in children.

 

Following the outcome of the Congenital Heart Disease services review, this provides the Committee with the opportunity to consider the current position of the paediatric critical care and specialised surgery for children review.

 

The committee is to receive a verbal update from University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust on the review and its impact on the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Unit at Glenfield Hospital.
