Facing the Future Together for Child Health: Practice examples

Below are the collection of practice examples sourced from across the UK. These practice examples are not endorsed by the RCPCH but are intended to illustrate a range of ways in which the standards are already being implemented. 

The Facing the Future Together for Child Health standards aim to ensure there is always high quality diagnosis and care early in the unscheduled pathway and to reduce unnecessary attendances at the emergency department and admissions to hospital by providing care closer to home. 

The standards will bring specialist child health expertise directly into general practice where the needs of the child or young person are known and build connections between primary and secondary care.
