The CYPHP team of specialists are committed to providing high quality care to children and young people (CYP) with asthma, epilepsy, constipation and eczema. Care is provided close to home to help CYP and their carers to manage their health condition more effectively and with confidence. CYPHP staff routinely assess CYP’s physical health alongside their mental health, as we recognise the impact both can have on each other.
Reviews and support are provided according to the needs of the CYP and their carers across a variety of community settings including the CYP’s home, the CYP’s school, community clinics and GP practices etc.

How will it help you do your job?
The CYPHP clinical teams are specialist in their area of care and can offer in depth reviews and advice to CYP and their carers. CYPHP clinical team’s aims to work in conjunction with all primary care providers, recognising that we all play a vital part when supporting CYPs with long-term health conditions.
All reviews will be documented within EMIS to allow seamless communication between ourselves and other primary care providers. We will also contact you directly when we have concerns. The aim is that when a CYP attends an appointment either with you or the CYPHP team, we will all be able to clearly see their history and focus on the current concern, therefore fully utilising precious time.
CYPs can be referred directly to CYPHP by the school nursing teams. We will review and support school age CYP with asthma and epilepsy ensuring they have appropriate management and emergency plans within school. Management plans will be sent to school nursing teams to ensure seamless communication.
We will offer support on an individual child basis and endeavour to promote good practice when engaging with the school faculty. If we discover areas for improvement we will pass this information onto the school nursing teams so it can be addressed.
