New standards aim to reduce variations in care and improve the health outcomes and quality of care for infants, children and young people with gastroenterology, hepatology and nutritional disorders.
Download standards (PDF 996KB)
The RCPCH has partnered with the British Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (BSPGHAN) to develop new standards for paediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition. The purpose of the quality standards is to reduce variation in care, ensuring equitable services are available for all infants, children and young people and to improve the health outcomes and quality of life for children with gastroenterology, liver or intestinal disorders throughout the UK.
The nine standards have been built around the requirement for the full portfolio of specialist gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition services to be provided within clinical networks.
Future vision for paediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition
Standards will be formally launched at the RCPCH Annual Conference during the BSPGHAN symposium on Wednesday 24 May 2017, 2pm-5.45pm.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Melissa Ashe on 0207 092 6166.
