New NHS / NNPCF admissions avoidance for children and young people - what is the NHS doing and how can parent carer forums help?

Join us for a webinar on Thursday Oct 22, 2020 at 12:00 PM BST.

URGENT - new NHS / NNPCF webinar on admissions avoidance for children and young people - what is the NHS doing and how can parent carer forums help?

The last few months have been difficult for many young people with SEND including those with learning disabilities and/or autism and mental health problems. Recognising the particular challenges for these families during COVID-19, we are holding this webinar with the CYP Team in the Learning Disability and Autism Programme in NHS England and Improvement. The webinar will:

  • explain how existing policies such as Care Education and Treatment Reviews and the Dynamic Support Register are critical in this period
  • describe a new programme of work to ensure Admission Avoidance through NHS England and Improvement regions
  • outline how parent carer forums and NNPCF regions can support this work
  • launch additional to help build NNPCF regional and Forum capacity to strengthen strategic coproduction and help local families and children.
