Condition specific COVID-19 guidance for children and young people

Many of our children and young people receive treatment and support from our many specialist teams. These teams link more widely to national networks who publish guidance for both patients and families.

This page has been designed to collate current COVID-19 related guidance so that we can easily share it with you. Please note that guidance was correct at the time of publishing, but given the nature of the current challenges, advice is continually being updated.
