Paediatric Post-Covid Syndrome Service

NCL Wide
Add to CPD

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, either after discussion with paediatrics or via rapid referral clinic route, using the referral form (Suspected Post COVID-19 Local Paediatrician Referral Form – NCL). 

Paediatrics will assess and refer on to the Paediatric Virtual MDT as necessary using the NHS England referral form, who will give advice or divert to the tertiary Post Covid Service at UCLH for those with severe or complex symptoms where required.

If there any problems or delays in the referral process please contact london.cyppostcovid@nhs.net
