The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has released a report calling for health services for children and young people to be delivered within networks of care.

The report, A guide to understanding pathways and implementing networks, is available to download. It contains information and advice applicable to all forms of health and social care networks, not just paediatric and child health ones.

A Royal College spokesperson said: 'Networks can provide a structure for services to develop seamless care that cuts across existing organisational boundaries. Networks allow key stakeholders to work together to plan, deliver and improve services.'
