Description

In 2012 more than 2000 children and young people (CYP) aged 1–19 died in England and Wales. For CYP, cancer, nervous system, respiratory, cardiovascular and congenital conditions account for about 60% of deaths. The nine independent hospices across North East England have formed a collaborative (Hospices North East, HNE) working together to enable collective description of the type and volume of services provided, and the patients and their families served. We describe the services provided for CYP.
