Continuing Care for Children

Children's Continuing Care (CCC) is for children and young people aged up to 18 years whose needs cannot be met by commissioned services. Eligibility is decided by a team of specialist nurses using a decision support tool which has been developed nationally as part of the National Framework for Continuing Care for Children.

Your paediatrician will usually make a referral to CCC if they feel a child or young person would benefit from an assessment.

In County Durham assessments for CCC are carried out by the north of England Commissioning Support Unit on behalf of the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System.

Young people over the age of 18 years would be assessed by the Continuing Health Care Team.


Durham County Council's Families Information Service does not promote nor endorse the services advertised on this website. Anyone seeking to use/access such services does so at their own risk and may make all appropriate enquiries about fitness for purpose and suitability to meet their needs.
