Children and young people have been at the centre of policy in Scotland over recent years, with a clear recognition that the future of our nation is dependent on the health and well-being of our children. The SPSP Paediatric programme is currently focussing on reducing unplanned admissions to Paediatric Intensive Care Units (PICU), Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) and central venous catheter related blood stream infections.
