Identifying your package of care
If you are eligible, the lead nurse from the Children and Young People Continuing Care team will work closely with local authority Children’s Services to agree a package of care that meets all their health and care needs as a whole. The package of care will be discussed and agreed with you and your family, or representative. This can be within the family home, respite outside of the family home or to support access to community activities.
This might be a joint package of care using both health and social care that is funded by the NHS integrated care board and county council children’s services.
We will also agree with you the best way of providing the care. For example, this could be provided by a care agency, or you could have a Personal Health Budget so that you can arrange this yourself
