Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust has started work on a review of In recent years there has been a significant increase in demand for these services, and this has had an impact on waiting times and access to appointments and therapy services.
The review aims to improve services for patients and families, so that they can access high-quality care and support when they really need it. It will look at how services are provided now, and different ways they could be provided in the future. This may include alternative ways of offering assessments, running clinics or consultations in different ways or locations, and developing new roles within teams.
It is important that any newly-designed services meet the needs of patients and carers. Working with children and their families will help make the very best use of the resources available.
