Working Together – Model for the care of the acutely unwell child

Nationally, the Royal College of Paediatricians and Child Health have highlighted the issues and challenges facing the provision of children’s acute care services in district general hospitals relating to the availability of a medical workforce sufficient to staff the current service configuration, leading to concerns about timely access to specialist opinion and continuity of care. This has informed the development of a Case for Change which the Senate was asked to review.
