Children and Young People’s Continuing Care

The National Framework for children and young people’s continuing care (March 2010 DOH) sets out a multiagency assessment process for children who have needs arising from disability, accident or illness that cannot be met by existing universal or specialist services.

The Continuing Care teams roles includes:

  • Accepting/screening referrals for eligibility assessment.
  • Assessing the health needs of a Child or Young Person using the Decision Support Tool and gathering supportive evidence.
  • Deciding eligibility for Continuing Care via a multiagency panel process.
  • Allocating a package of care to suitable and qualified providers available based on the evidenced health needs of a Child or Young Person.
  • Reviewing/ reassessing the package after eligibility criteria are reached as per the framework recommendations.
