The new service will consist of 15 new paediatric hubs with experts to treat young people and advise their families and carers or refer them to specialist services. The NHS has invested £100m in specialist services to help meet the needs of the possible hundreds of thousands who are expected to experience long COVID with symptoms ranging

    Three acute trusts have teamed up to carry out surgical procedures on hundreds of children over several weekends as part of plans to tackle waiting lists in the region.

Coded and aggregated patient complaint data therefore offer a metric for identifying and promoting behavior change. Analysis of the distribution of patient complaints associated with 41 paediatric cardiac surgeons is presented as a means for helping leaders show one surgeon how her/his risk status c

    New monitors that can detect the deadly blood condition sepsis are being fitted at a Scottish children's hospital. The equipment will be installed at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.
