NHS England publishes updated guidance to country’s paediatric intensive care units

NHS England publishes updated guidance to country’s paediatric intensive care units NHS England has today published updated guidance for managing seasonal pressures in paediatric intensive care. The Paediatric Intensive Care Surge Standard Operating Procedure sets out instructions for managing unplanned peaks in demand for critical care beds, across the country’s 29 paediatric intensive care units (PICUs).

The demand for critical care beds is exacerbated by wider pressures across the NHS system and social care, as winter starts to bite. NHS England
