Planning for our children's future.

This page is for our stakeholders and partners who are part of our collective health and care system in north east London working to shine a light on the needs of children, young people and their families as we work together to harness our shared purpose of being collaboratively ambitious for child health.

On 15 May 2020, over 100 stakeholders working across children’s and young people’s services came together to consider how we might move forward as a local and wider system and collectively support the health of our children and young people during this challenging period, and maybe even more importantly, beyond the pandemic.

The Covid 19 pandemic has had a significant impact both directly and indirectly on the health of children and young people.  Paediatric services have been re-shaped, there have been less children accessing services and many late presentations of unwell children.  There have also a variety of societal changes, such as the suspension of standard school services and lockdown of citizens, which have particularly put vulnerable children at risk.  Since the start of the pandemic we have been working closely across north east London to collectively manage system risks, highlight issues, share best practice and find solutions to common problems.

The presentations from the day, a letter from Kath Evans our clinical lead and reflections and next steps can be found in the Downloads section. The full recorded event can be viewed below.
