Bones and joints

We recognise that children with complex needs will have ongoing physical needs that we will need to support.


What can you do to help?

Children with complex needs will have had assessments and exercises recommended that you can continue with at home wherever possible.

If you have concerns that your child has a significant joint or bone problem such as a dislocation or break, please access A&E as normal. There will be a policy in place which aims to keep your child separated from other patients who may have coronavirus.

Parents/carers who are concerned that their child may be in pain but are uncertain if they have any problems with their bones or joints are advised to contact the central Cambridgeshire Children and Young People's Services on: 0300 029 5050 or where they can discuss and may be directed to a physiotherapist or paediatrician. 

Who can help?


If you’re worried about your child, our team will be able to offer advice and support. You can Call Us on 0300 029 50 50 **Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm excluding bank holidays** ask to speak to the community paediatricians.

If it is life threatening, call 999 for an ambulance.

Urgent care will still be delivered by your local hospital if needed. If you do go to the hospital, please remember to take either your healthcare passport or your latest clinic letter from the community paediatricians.

For children with very complex health care needs we recommend parents to keep a short video recording of when the children are well, this is useful for clinicians to know how they normally act.
