Who we are

We are a team of specialist registered children’s nurses, who provide comprehensive assessments for children and young people up to the age of 18, who have complex health needs unable to be met by universal services.

What we do

We carry out health assessments according to The Department of Health criteria for children’s continuing care with east Kent. Those assessments are then presented to the multi-disciplinary panel including commissioners and social care. Where eligibility for the continuing care package is agreed and then implemented by the commissioning support unit.
