Proposed new standards for health providers in NI

The Department for Health, Social Services and Public Safety is consulting on minimum care standards for independent healthcare establishments (bit.ly/1c8t9Pq).

Three of the 67 standards relate specifically to children’s palliative care and include:

Assessing and Caring for Children and Young People in Hospices, which calls for the special needs of children to be addressed;

Qualifications and Training for Staff Caring for Children in Hospices, which specifies that children and young people should be cared for by a multi-professional team with expertise and training in providing palliative care for children;

and Hospice Environment for Care of Children and YoungPeople, which calls for children’s special needs to be addressed by the facilities provided.
