Additional Support:

The Children & Young People’s Complex Care team is a part of the Children’s Community Nursing Team.

Staff:

Nicky Boag - Lead Manager

Jeanette McGrogan - Head of Service

Soraya Begum - Team Leader

Conditions:

The service is adaptable and care is provided for children and young people with a range of conditions including ventilation, and brain-acquired injury.

 

We work with each child/young person and family to provide individualised care packages to a high standard. The aim of the team is to maintain normal family relationships within the home for and for the child/young person to remain safely cared for in their own home setting, and to minimise the need for hospital admissions by prompt intervention of the care team.

 

The service, in liaison with the referring hospital, co-ordinates complex care packages including identifying the clinical needs of the children/young people and their families. With the correct support they will be able to participate in family and community activities, lead ordinary lives and enjoy their childhood.

Referrals:

Referrals are made to the service from a wide range of services and health professionals, including Royal Manchester Children's Hospital and other local hospitals.

 

Referrals should be directed to Soraya Begum, Team Leader, and are accepted by telephone, fax or post.
