The Respiratory Surge in Children Programme is designed to support the cross-skilling of the NHS workforce to manage:
- existing demand in children
- potential future spikes in paediatric demand as a result of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and other respiratory illnesses in children
- longer-term increasing paediatric acuity and demand in children
The resources are aimed at healthcare staff working in the various settings where a child will present with respiratory illness, including home, primary and community care, and across the acute hospital environment.
