The Central Children’s Long-Term Ventilation Service is a specialist commissioned service by NHSe and hosted at the Royal Brompton Hospital. It is a multidisciplinary team whose primary focus is to provide clinical, educational and welfare support for the management and safe, timely discharge of children on long-term ventilation.
Our team offers an array of standard and bespoke educational packages to support health care professionals, carers and parents in learning and maintaining tracheostomy ventilation skills.
The welfare advice service is designed to support primary carers and professionals through the discharge process for children who require tracheostomy long-term ventilation from hospital to home. The aim of the service is to provide support with non-clinical issues and enquiries.
The services and resources on this website are intended to be utilised by healthcare professionals and to support formal training being delivered by healthcare professionals. The resources are freely available for use by all, but practitioners should always refer to their local guidance if planning to use them in their own services.
For parents and carers please contact your child’s managing centre for advice.
