Children and young people’s continuing care

What is continuing care?

Some children and young people (up to age 18), may have very complex health needs

These may be the result of:

  • congenital conditions
  • long-term or life-limiting conditions
  • disability
  • serious illness or injury

Children with such complex needs may need additional health support to that which is routinely available from GP practices, hospitals or in the community.

This additional package of care is called continuing care. The clinical commissioning group, which is responsible for arranging for health services locally, has responsibility for assessing children and young people to see if they need a package of continuing care.

The Personal health budget team can provide more information about what may be available. (PHB)

More information can be found on the downloadable leaflet
