Children's Continuing Care

The Complex Care Team is an integral element of the Community Nursing Team and provides respite to children aged 0-18 years who meet the criteria for Children’s Continuing Care in the home setting.  

The service is available to children who are resident in the Cambridge City, South  & East Cambridgeshire and Huntingdon areas.  Referrals are accepted from a range of health and social care professionals.

The benefits of the service can include:

  • to empower children and their families to live as full a life as possible enabling them to cope both physically and emotionally 
  • maximising treatment and inclusion of children with complex health needs both in the social and educational settings 
  • helping children with chronic conditions and their families become experts in the management of their care
  • supporting families to provide a quality death for their child in the place of their choice 
  • minimising and averting crises and maintaining the child’s emotional and social wellbeing 
  • through respite enabling other members of the family to take part in activities that may not be suitable for the child with medical needs 
  • avoiding hospital admission wherever possible and facilitating early hospital discharge.
