Children’s Services

5-19 Healthy Child Service – North Yorkshire

The 5-19 Healthy Child Service promotes and protects the health and wellbeing of all children and young people aged 5 to 19. We work with children, young people and families to empower and enable them to make informed decisions about health, and to support them in transitioning safely and happily into adult life.

Paediatric Outpatients Department

Our dedicated Children’s Outpatient Service caters for children from birth to 16 years of age. The Paediatric Outpatients Department is run by a combination of consultants, paediatricians and specialist nurses.

Safeguarding Children

Unfortunately, children are occasionally put at risk, or even hurt or harmed. The Trust takes its responsibility to safeguard all children very seriously. Our specialist Safeguarding Children Team provides training, support and advice to equip all staff to quickly recognise safeguarding concerns and take action to address them.

Specialist Children’s Services

Specialist Children's Services are for children and young people, 0-19 year of age, with physical, communication, learning and developmental difficulties or disabilities which affect health and wellbeing.

Youth Communication Team

The Speech and Language Therapy Youth Communication Team is a three year project which has been running since November 2013 and is funded by North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC).
