Public consultation on Draft Overarching National Standards for the

Care and Support of Children using Health and Social Care Services

HIQA and the MHC have launched a six-week public consultation to give people an opportunity to provide their feedback on a Draft Overarching National Standards for the Care and Support of Children using Health and Social Care Services. These draft national standards set out what outcomes a child using health or social care services should expect and what a service needs to do to achieve these outcomes. The standards cover all health and social care services working with children including disability services, mental health services, primary care services, hospital services and children’s social services. The standards aim to support health and social care services to deliver high-quality, safe, consistent and coordinated care and support to children using these services.

 

A briefing document is attached to provide information about these Draft Overarching National Standards. Please read this before you complete the form. The Draft Overarching National Standards, the form and instructions on how to fill out and submit the form are all available here.

 

The closing date for the public consultation is 5pm on Thursday 28 October 2021.
