Closer to Home
Children’s Care Closer to Home (CCCH) is a new project operating in Central North cluster which aims to treat children with minor illnesses more quickly by referring to a dedicated Advanced Paediatric Nurse Practitioner (APNP) within a general practice setting.
APNPs can deliver clinical assessments, advice and treatment for children with minor and self-limiting conditions.
To access this service, parents in the Central North cluster would contact their own GP practice as normal, and will discuss their childs' symptoms with the practice staff. The staff can then offer a same day appointment with the APNP who is based at Four Seasons Medical Centre at Orford Jubilee Hub.
The project is still at the early stages of delivery, but already the APNP is treating children with coughs, colds, fever symptoms, ear, nose & throat complaints and some minor injuries.
