The Children’s Complex and Continuing Care team delivers specialised homecare packages for children and young people with complex health needs that are dependent on technology to live. This includes long-term ventilation, tracheostomy care, Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and renal dialysis. We coordinate a safe discharge from hospital to home for the child/young person and provide a package of health care support in the community.
We look after children from 0 – 18 who have a life limiting or life threatening condition and who have a nursing need.
We assess each child individually and identify health needs and outcomes. The length of time the service supports a child will depend on the findings of the initial assessment.
The service provides care for children and young people from 0-18 years who are resident in the Islington and Camden.
