Children and young people with complex needs

Support is available for children and young people aged under 18 who have complex needs such as chronic physical, developmental, behavioural and psychological conditions.

The Children’s Continuing Care Team can provide a support package for children and young people with complex needs or long term conditions. They will carry out an assessment to see if the child or young person is eligible.

If you think your child should be assessed for NHS continuing care, talk to your social worker or doctor about this. A request for an assessment must come from health, education or social care professional who works with your child and knows their health and care needs.

Details about continuing care for children is available on the Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire ICB website
