Paediatric Advanced Nurse Practitioners

Paediatric Advanced Nurse Practitioners

A team of skilled children's nurses working within the Accident and Emergency Department providing consistent, high quality emergency care for children and young people. The aim of the service is to ensure children and young people are not admitted to inpatient areas if their care can be delivered safely and effectively at home. The practitioners aim to improve patient access to appropriate and relevant health care and to offer advice and information to empower children, young people and their families to actively promote their own health thereby reducing further attendance in the emergency department.
