SPSP Paediatric programme

Supporting improved outcomes for children and families in Scotland

The 2023 SPSP Paediatric Programme change package for the deteriorating child and young person was co-designed and co-produced with clinical and quality improvement experts from NHS boards. An Expert Reference Group was convened in March 2023 with representation from across NHS Scotland.

This change package is a resource to support teams to improve the recognition, response and review of the deteriorating child and young person. It brings together what is known about best practices and processes based on evidence from literature, research, and the experiences of others.
