Disabled Children And Children With Complex Health Needs

Posted on: 1st November 2011

Andrew George has signed EDM2322. Motion reads: “That this House notes the findings of the report produced by the campaign organisation Every Disabled Child Matters and the Children’s Trust which calls for action to ensure that the NHS addresses long-standing problems experienced by disabled children in accessing health services in the UK; believes the Government should use every opportunity to reform and create a system that works for disabled children rather than leaving families to fill the gaps in provision; and calls on the Government in itsfuture health policies to set priorities for children’s health as part of its mandate to NHS commissioning boards and to instruct the Department of Health to set out a clear vision of the way in which it can deliver and maintain a system which can fullymeet the healthneeds of all disabled children and children with complex health needs.”
