Feeding

Some children with complex care needs may have feeding tubes inserted directly into the stomach.

Each child who has a tube has been given an additional tube in case of being dislodged. 

During the coronavirus pandemic if you have concerns  contact with community nurses in the same way as usual services remain open.

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.
