The key purpose of this service is to complete assessments for Children`s Continuing Care within a multi-agency team, to request commissioned services where required and co-ordinate these services with social care colleagues.  This is to ensure children and their parents/carers are supported to meet these children's complex health needs.

The service also supports generic health visiting, school nursing and specialist health teams with advice, signposting and support as required by children and families. Children's Continuing Care assessments as part of a joint assessment with social care colleagues. Support for families and referrals to appropriate agency as necessary.

The service will actively support a child and family whilst they continue to meet the criteria for Children Continuing Care. We will support families and other professionals with support, advise and networking as necessary.
