Paediatric Liaison Team

We work with providers of acute and secondary care to children aged up to 19 years old who attend Nottingham University Hospitals and Sherwood Forest Hospitals.

Our service aims to ensure the safeguarding of all children using healthcare services. We make sure there is effective communication between hospital and any healthcare community services used. This is helped by our having access to both hospital and community computer systems. This means we can be sure of timely, effective and accurate sharing of information with health colleagues.

Our clinical practitioners co-ordinate the CONI (care of the next infant) scheme across Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County. This is a support scheme for parents who have had a baby die suddenly and unexpectedly. Support is provided by consultant paediatricians, midwifes and health visitors.

Service opening hours

Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 5pm.
