The Community Children's Nursing Service (CCNS) provides a range of services to support children who reside within the London Borough of Newham and who require nursing care, palliative care, technical support nursing or dietetic nutritional support within their home or other community setting. The CCNS is split into five teams covering different client groups: The Diana Team (palliative care); The Epilepsy Nursing Service; The Children’s Community Nursing Team (CCNT); Paediatric community dietetic team and Children’s Continuing care team. The service provides specialist paediatric care to children and young people from birth to 16 years (19yrs for young people with a palliative care diagnosis in coordination with the Diana team).
