Searchable by paediatric condition and specialty areas, the Guideline Directory contains quick links to national clinical guidelines.

If you have a guideline that you would like to be included, please contact us. Please note that all guidelines need to be developed in accordance with our manual, Setting Standards for Development of Clinical Guidelines in Paediatrics and Child Health.

We often consult on national guidelines and standards, if you would would like to participate in guideline development, and influence and contribute to new paediatric clinical guidelines and quality standards, apply to our consultation panel to get requests tailored to your clinical interests.
