Community Children’s Nursing (CCN)

Welcome to the Community Children’s Nursing (CCN) web pages for Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

There are two dimensions to CCN work. Firstly, the service aims to prevent admission to hospital or facilitate early discharge, to enable children with short term (acute) illness or health problems to be cared for at home. This is where the child is usually happiest, and has been shown to improve recovery rates, whilst also reducing disruption to family life.

The second role is about supporting families in the care of children with long-term health problems, nursing needs and end of life care when necessary. This can be through clinical care and procedures, or by assessing and planning care with the family, alongside other professionals involved, or by advising and teaching skills to empower families to confidently take on these responsibilities.
