Health – current situation
Following the SEND reforms in the Children and Families Act 2014, there is now a higher degree of joints working and co-operation between Health, Education and Social Care as this is required by this new law.
A number of meetings that we attend now have representatives from Health at them which is helping HPCI to forge new links.
Currently we only have one health specific meeting attended by a parent rep. This is the Children and Young People’s Palliative Care Network.
This group looks at the developments and issues around children and young people with complex health needs and/or life limiting conditions. and is attended by health professionals, a health commissioner and HPCI rep.
