NHS England has published clinical guidance on assessing and managing children and young people with symptoms of post-Covid-19 syndrome.

The paediatric post-Covid-19 pathway mirrors the NCL adult pathway and recommends triage and assessment in primary care before referring onwards when specialist advice is required.

Referral is initially to local paediatric services, using the attached form, who will refer on to Paediatric MDT as necessary.

NHS England has also created a referral form for paediatricians to refer patients to a virtual paediatric MDT.
