Working with our partners we commission the delivery of services for children and young people with a particular focus on; improving outcomes for those with emotional health and well-being issues, at the end of their life and with integrated commissioning needs.

Our Services

SEND Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND)

The Children and Families Act 2014 places statutory duties on the NHS, both health commissioners, and providers, to work with the local authority to provide the best support to disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs aged 0-25 years.

This includes:

  • Early identification of children and young people with SEND and notification to the appropriate local authority (LA)
  • Early support offered to children, young people, and their families with SEND and support to others involved in their health care needs.
  • Develop effective ways to gain views of children, young people, families & local communities of user experience with SEND.
  • Contribute to the Education, Health, and Care needs assessment led by the local authority.
  • Work with LA to contribute to the SEND Local Offer
  • Work in partnership with the local authorities, children, young people and their families to participate in commissioning services to meet the identified needs and improve outcomes for those with SEND.
