We are delighted to announce we are upgrading our website for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Children and Young People’s Services. All service provision will remain the same, as will contact details. Families do not need to do anything.

In early December ‘Cambridgeshire Peterborough Children’s Health’ will launch. The page you are currently on and any saved pages you have, will automatically redirect to their new version on the new website.

Thank you.
