Spotlight on patient safety

In our new podcast series, we are speaking with leaders on the challenging, thought-provoking issues around keeping our children safe in healthcare settings.

And, we're collaborating with NHS England and Royal College of Nursing on a single national Paediatric Early Warning System, or PEWS. This is part of the NHS programme, System-wide Paediatric Observations Tracking, or SPOT.

Our quality programmes

We work with teams across the country to improve care, outcomes and the quality of life for children and young people, and their families.

EQIP is our current programme for paediatric epilespy teams in England and Wales. We've recently completed a successful programme with paediatric diabetes units.

Our audits aim to improve care and health outcomes for babies, children and young people, including epilepsy, diabetes and neonatal services, as well as on child protection.
